Wall Street Parking
Contacted by the Wall Street Neighborhood Association regarding plans by the University of Michigan to build two large parking decks on Wall Street, Celeste Allen Novak of rizzolobrown + novak participated in a series of meetings and discussion groups to come up with alternatives and successfully mediate greater communications. With the help of Lawrence Tech students who visualize the potential for alternative sites, such as the Fuller Road future transit center, the Wall Street neighborhood association was able to discuss their visions for this area. City council members, the mayor and University staff all listened as members of this vibrant neighborhood expressed their concerns. Neighbors are planning a celebration and plan to continue to push for more transparent development processes in the future through communications with the University and the City.
