Syracuse Connective Corridor
Syracuse, NY | 2013 | 3.5 miles
The Connective Corridor is a public-private partnership focused on creative placemaking, urban revitalization, complete streetscapes, sustainability and smart growth. The Corridor links Syracuse University with downtown central business districts and neighborhoods, and connects an arts and cultural district featuring more than 30 venues. The project includes new pedestrian pathways, streetscapes, green infrastructure, bikeways, redesigned public spaces and public art.
The lighting program, envisioned as a 3.5 mile “corridor of light” utilizes a site-specific “kit-of-parts” to define passageways and highlight significant locations along the way. In tandem with landscape and graphic design, the lighting adds color and vibrancy to the streetscape in every season, day and night. The project has been recognized nationally and internationally for its collaborative model, and for excellence in planning, engineering and design.
