The Streetscape Improvement Plan for Division Street, as it crosses
through the Goose Island Industrial Campus, serves to identify a
major access route from the Kennedy Expressway into Chicagos
lakefront "Gold Coast" neighborhood. The streetscape improvements
continue from Elston Avenue to Halsted Street, spanning across two
rivers to serve as a gateway into Chicago.
Sonoc Architects provided land and traffic planning analysis drawings,
design concept illustrations and detailed drawings to identify the
project scope and costs. Community meetings were convened with local
businesses, City of Chicago Departments and local neighborhood organizations
to identify projects, needs and goals. The streetscape elements
include new sidewalks, parkways, curbs, gutters, roadway re-configurations,
new bus shelters, information kiosks, seating, gateway markers and
business identification signage.
