My street analysis helped me consider which street would be most interesting to develop. I am drawn to the streets that have more commercial properties around them, and fascinated to see how Streets Without Cars could work in this context. Additionally, how residential areas surrounding a commercial node could make use of it will be worth exploring.
Clark Street and the eastern end of North Street is an area that exhibits a wide range of building uses.
A bar, food manufacturing warehouses, coffee roaster, car repair and studio spaces populate these two streets. How might Streets Without Cars respond to this context and how can a project engage with such a wide variety of uses? Given the commercial context, the space of the street could be considered the place of commercial exchange: delivery, production, wholesale, retail and consumption.
The streets are primarily asphalt (North Street = 9m, Clark Street 8m), with narrow foot paths (1.2m) either side. There is some planting along the nearby River Street running alongside new residential developments.
