The Orpheum Plaza District Design Collaborative presents exciting proposals for improvements to Route 18 and the Orpheum Theater. Come see the 4' x 9' model showing how artists and designers envision this South End neighborhood revitalized with new buildings, pedestrian friendly streets, and a plaza crossing Route 18! Elements of the proposal include: new trees and plantings, a stoplight at Gifford Street, fountains, alleviation of traffic at Cove Street, a plaza for community events, opportunities for public art, all creating a gateway to the South End.
