This section of 11th Street is excessively wide for the number of vehicles that travel on it. By repurposing some of this space as a parklet, we can enhance existing business and pedestrian activity in the area, as well as slow down cars to make the street safer for everyone.
The plan is to deck over three on-street parking spaces, similar to the parklets installed in 2022 at Spring and Peachtree Place.
The parklet will take advantage of the existing, mature tree canopy and create a space that is a welcoming refuge for those who want to meet a friend, enjoy a bite to eat, or experience the pulse of the city. The parklet will include an ADA-accessible ramp, a bike and scooter corral, and welcoming lighting. A variety of seating options will be provided as well as lots of planters and greenery.
