At the heart of the Lincoln Park Coast Cultural District lies the remaining facade of the South Park Presbyterian Church along with a vacant lot where the church once stood. A symbol to a storied past, LPCCD envisions this site as a unique opportunity for the fusion of several programmatic elements that will transform this vacant lot to a ‘town square’ for this developing neighborhood that will include a hydroponic community farm, a neighborhood square, outdoor classrooms, an arts garden and performance venue.
Arterial, teaming with Rogers Marvel Architects, led a collaborative design effort to develop a vision and concept design for this dynamic space. Arterial facilitated a full-day stakeholder design charette with all neighborhood leaders, residents and artists. Furthering LPCCD’s goal as a sustainable neighborhood, Arterial designed a unique stormwater collection and re-use system that captured roofwater from adjacent buildings. As with any urban space, care was taken to ensure proper safety and security while creating a beautiful and inviting space for the community. The result is a plan for a vibrant, sustainable arts and culture plaza that celebrates the history and resilience of this community.
