The Challenge

Incremental engineering efforts to facilitate traffic movement have undermined Piqua’s Main Street corridor and downtown’s pedestrian scale. The historic town square and town hall were demolished in the early 1900s further eroding signature gathering spaces.


Consolidation of surface parking areas enables the reintroduction of Piqua’s town square. Inspired by the canal lift bridges, gateway elements signal entry into downtown.

The Results

Funding is being sought for initial transportation improvements.
