We have designed a courtyard in the heart of the historic downtown that will transform an inner city block into a pedestrian friendly open space that will also feature Daylighting of the Saw Mill River which currently runs in an underground flume within the courtyard block. New paved walkways, landscaping, a central rain garden, and street furniture are planned for the space. The Saw Mill River will be uncovered as part of a spectacular water feature which will be crossed over by new vehicular and pedestrian bridges.
