Help Design a New Parklet at The SPACE_BETWEEN
Could you be the next great urban planner? Let’s find out.
Join us Wednesday, April 9 at The SPACE_BETWEEN as we envision creative ways to activate the vacant lot between Valley Youth Theater and Taylor Place Student Housing.
This temporary vacant lot activation project, part of Phoenix Urban Design Week, will bring a new community space to Downtown in the shape of a backyard patio where residents, visitors, downtown employees and students can play, relax and commune. Join us and offer your suggestions for the space – a team of designers will be on hand to translate your vision into a site plan that the Downtown Phoenix Partnership will then implement.
