Sheldon Plaza and Green Wall
The Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Gallery sought to create an outdoor space alongside the building, where an existing parking lot was located. Through this project, the Sheldon Concert Hall became a part of the “Grand Center Art Walk,” as it connects the Public Media Commons to the Pulitzer Art Foundation. Throughout the project’s duration, parking availability for the Sheldon Concert Hall was maintained.
As part of the design team, CDI assisted in the creation of a parking lot and outdoor plaza that met the owner’s needs. The owner also elected to pursue a stormwater grant and install Best Management Practices (BMP) within the parking and plaza areas. By incorporating BMP along the parking area, the CDI team was able to delineate the parking from the plaza in a park-like fashion. CDI provided site civil and structural engineering services for the parking area, plaza area, and pedestrian walks, and completed the stormwater management design.
