Coolidge Corner is one of New England’s most eclectic town squares, offering an invigorating mixture of unique retail, award winning restaurants, and a nationally recognized independent cinema. The deeply integrated nature of the residential community at Coolidge Corner makes this destination a constantly evolving, living place.

The Center Street parking area is the largest off-street parking lot at Coolidge Corner and an important part of this artistic district’s functionality. It is connected directly to the heart of Coolidge Corner by 4 pedestrian Alleyways.

Our project took these nondescript and unsafe alleys and turned them into a cultural extension of Coolidge Corner itself, creating special ‘places within the place,’ elevating their status to become the true pedestrian gateways to Coolidge Corner.
