Project Description & Challenge

The Lincolnville Historic District is an area of the city of St. Augustine established by freedmen following the American Civil War and located on the southwest peninsula of the “nation’s oldest city.” It was designated as an historic district in 1991 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Lincolnville Landscape Master Plan seeks to reinforce the neighborhood’s historic charm and character to help improve long-term livability for residents. Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. served as the consultant on a neighborhood-wide effort to evaluate and improve the historic landscape character.

Solution

New entry features designate the boundaries of the district. Numerous existing pocket parks are proposed for renovation, seeking to better tell the historic narrative of the area, and serving as a welcoming amenity spaces for the residents, Streetscape and improved circulation elements improve walkability and livability of the area. Additionally, large open spaces on the southern tip of the neighborhood have been master planned for strategic growth both as recreational fields and open green space.
