Client: Washington Park Partners
Location: Washington Park, Milwaukee, WI
Community Design Solutions was hired by Washington Park Partners in the Fall of 2013 to come up with two facade improvements for deserving small business owners in the neighborhood. CDS staff met with the owners of Lloyd Foods Corner Store and Lighthouse Bookstore. Each owner expressed their concerns and existing challenges of their current facade as well as the changes that would benefit their business.
The existing facades were documented by staff who then collaborated on a final design. Improvements include the addition of large windows, awnings, signage, and planter boxes.
