BATAVIA STREETSCAPE

LOCATION: Batavia, IL

Altamanu worked with city staff, local representatives and a Citizens Design Committee to develop streetscape plans for three major downtown Batavia streets- Wilson Street, River Street & Houston Street.

River Street is the first constructed woonerf in the midwest. It features a curbless design to prioritize pedestrians over vehicles. River Street was awarded an Illinois Charter Award for “Best Street” by the Congress for New Urbanism in 2013 and a Merit Award by the American Society of Landscape Architects Illinois Chapter in 2014.
