Project Description & Challenge

The Oldest Street in America, Aviles Street, is part of the original city plan, developed by Spanish Royal decree around 1573. Although the street was rich in history and charm, many tourists (and even local residents) did not know of its history. Compounding the challenge was a limited budget, various user groups, and narrow right-of-ways.


Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. led the community in the development and implementation of a comprehensive improvement plan. The improvement plan included public participation, addition of an outdoor dining ordinance and parking revenue plan, and complete streetscape design.
