Project Description & Challenge

Canal Street’s stylized streetscape in downtown New Smyrna Beach celebrates the unique materials of this oceanfront community. Coquina shell, tabby concrete, custom ironwork, palms, and live oaks are used throughout the ten-block area. In Safety Harbor, the Main Street streetscape project incorporated a series of pedestrian-oriented and traffic-calming devices to help make a more walkable and dynamic downtown street.


For over 20 years, these streetscape projects have stood the test of time, creating the signature redevelopment feature for each community. Each project has added a rich, pedestrian oriented experience for residents and visitors.
