It would also include the addition of more street furniture and all-important "way finding" signage to guide pedestrians between destinations such as the River Market, the Financial Quarter
, even the Arkansas Arts Center and Governor's Mansion District to the south.
The scheme will complete the redevelopment of Edmund Street, which is a vital stretch of Birmingham's booming financial quarter
, situated parallel to Colmore Row.
Creating the Financial Quarter
is an effort led by StudioMAIN and a volunteer committee, who aim to improve and revitalize the area stretching from Sixth Street to the Arkansas River between Broadway and Main streets in downtown Little Rock.
According to Glen Woodruff, director of business development for Wittenberg Delony & Davidson Architects and the studio-MAIN coordinator for the project, the goal of the Financial Quarter
is to draw people out of their offices and onto the streets.
