Streetscape Construction for International Marketplace
Councilor Garduño was joined by Mayor Martin Chavez, Senator-Elect Tim Keller, Neighborhood leader Joanne Landry, and City Redevelopment staff at the groundbreaking for street scape improvements for the International Marketplace. The International Marketplace is the area south of Central and Louisiana.
The construction will include alteration of sidewalks, curb and gutter, asphalt, banners, planters, installation of greenery, irrigation system, site furniture, artistic amenities and street lighting.
The design will improve pedestrian orientation and provide a distinct identity. Below are some renderings of pillars that will be placed in the steet scape.
