DE DIEGO / ROOSEVELT AVE. REVITALIZATION

Connecting the Central Business District to the Hiram Bithorn Stadium complex along with a series of shopping and commercial areas, the Avenues of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and De Diego act as major arteries and thoroughfares for residents of San Juan. Heavy commercialization, vehicular congestion, limited parking and lack of well-defined streetscape boundaries of these two Avenues are a few of the constraints to a pedestrian-friendly environment.

 

Committed to returning the street to the pedestrian, the design team, working closely with the Secretary of Transportation and Public Works of Puerto Rico, created a vision and action plan for site-specific design interventions. Designed to enhance the corridors and capitalize on their unique character and uses, these interventions will act as catalysts for the creation of a vibrant pedestrian community that will serve as model streets for the City of San Juan.
