Winooski Downtown Master Plan, Winooski, Vermont
The Winooski Downtown Redevelopment Project is an ambitious $175 Million Dollar project to revitalize downtown Winooski. Wagner Hodgson developed a Landscape Master Plan as well as site designs for a series of prominent open spaces and streetscapes. The planning and design goals were to restructure and revitalize the existing fragmented elements of the central business district knitting them together with a compliment of new commercial/retail facilities, high density housing, and a 1200-car parking structure within a re-engineered traffic pattern. Two prominent open spaces are created – a centrally located public park and a civic plaza flanking the Historic Champlain Mill to the Winooski River. The project received a 2006 Smart Growth Award from the Vermont Forum on Sprawl.
