Gensler provided a mixed-use urban design and landscape strategy for a high-profile quarter of this historic city. The site, housing a number of significant buildings that reflect the city’s industrial past, is surrounded by rapidly changing urban districts and a growing residential population. The design focuses on a series of narrow arcade streets linking small-scale squares, each of which reinforces a distinct identity and use. A wider “boulevard” bisects the site, providing views to the historic buildings. A pocket park offers a focal point for a collection of restaurants and cafés.
