Project Description & Challenge

With millions of visitors to the nation’s oldest city, the community needed to provide 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. An adjacent festival park also needed re-purposing as an anchor for downtown events.

Solution

With the community’s support, St. Augustine was able to successfully complete this multi-modal, 1,100-car parking facility. The project merges automobiles, tour trains, horse carriages, buses, city transit, and pedestrians with an enlarged visitor information center.
