Southeast corner of Baltimore Avenue and Edgewood Road
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This project involves land acquisition, design and construction to create a park area at the southeast corner of Baltimore Avenue and Edgewood Road. The main part of the site is zoned commercial but is recommended for parks and open space in the Central US1 Corridor Sector Plan. The house previously occupying the site has been demolished and 2 lots adjoining the site on 47th Place will be acquired and subdivided. Design plans call for a pavilion that will serve as a gateway feature, pathways, extensive landscaping with native plants and micro bio-retention features.
Construction of the park and pavilion is substantially completed. Estimated completion date is August 2020.
Construction contract awarded to McDonnell Landscape, Inc. in June 2018. Notice to proceed issued on November 21, 2018 (delayed due to property acquisition/right-of-entry issues with the adjoining property owner). Construction start date March 1, 2019.
Anticipated Total Project Cost: $1,344,088
Construction cost: $969,000
Funding comes from Capital Project Reserves, Program Open Space, Community Legacy and the General Fund
