We wanted to give you a sneak peek of our ongoing conceptual drawings of our Capital Streetscape Project.

Many of you know that we began this project in 2007 with a Charrette we hosted along with Councilmember Letitia James the great folks of Project for Public Spaces. We continue to work  with the NYC Department of Transportation, The NYC Department of Transportation Construction and Design team and Parson’s for the final concept of the transformation of our 4 triangles into public plazas along North Flatbush Avenue.  We still are waiting for approval from the Design Commission and hope to start construction around Spring/Summer of 2014. We have final approval from Community Boards 6 and 8.

Copies of this design cannot be used without the permission of the North Flatbush Avenue BID.  For more information, contact sdavidson@nfbid.com.
