Organizing the Visitor Experience

With the community’s support, St. Augustine was able to successfully complete this multi-modal, 1100 car garage facility. The project provides a focal point and anchor for visitors and residents while creating an organized arrival experience adjacent to the historic downtown.

Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. designed pedestrian streetscapes and plazas using placemaking techniques that included local art and uniquely detailed fixtures. The project merges automobiles, tour trains, horse carriages, buses, city transit, and pedestrians with an enlarged visitor information center. An adjacent festival park creates an anchor for downtown events.
