Melendrez Conceptual Broadway Render Meléndrez

An early conceptual render for Broadway streetscape by Meléndrez shows on-street parking, extended sidewalk bump-outs for streetcar stations, sidewalk dining and design elements intended to bring to mind Broadway's historic terrazzo.

Want to weigh in on the future look of Broadway? This afternoon is your chance, as the Bringing Back Broadway effort and landscape architecture firm Meléndrez invite Downtowners to join them for the "Broadway Walk."

Scattered showers are supposed to be moving through Downtown the rest of the day, but just find a clear spot and head over to walk the street. Walkers should meet at the Chapman Building (756 S. Broadway) to get an introduction to the event and pick up a survey form.

If you missed it, be sure to check out our preview of the event, featuring an interview with Meléndrez's Melani Smith.

If you do make it out to the walk, stop back afterward and share your thoughts on the event and what you saw on the street.
