description  
Split into analysis and proposal this board identifies the Oretha Castle Haley Corridor as the focus for Central City’s regeneration. Acknowledging issues such as crime zones and the lack of green space, this design envisions a 5-phase renewal plan for the neighborhood focusing on residential renewal as well as commercial use and community outreach. Further, the plan highlights the already thriving arts-driven district of the neighborhood by adding increased public performance space in conjunction with more parkland for recreation and green space. As a whole the design aims to improve on the existing built environment while enhancing pedestrian and community access to resources.
