New Albany Main Street / Mansion Row Streetscape
As they say, “It’s all in the details”. The City of New Albany engaged a consultant team that included Landstory to develop a vision for their historic main street corridor, Mansion Row. Broadened pedestrian ways included new sidewalks, planted medians, lighting, and gateway elements and raingardens capped off this custom designed corridor and included gateway monuments, decorative pavement, custom address markers and native landscape. Segments of original limestone curbs were excavated and reoriented in the median as edge treatments to lend authenticity to the streetscape while preserving this important New Albany relic.
