Brazos Streetscape

MWM DESIGNGROUP provided the design and construction phase oversight for the comprehensive reconstruction of the existing Brazos Streetscape.

The Brazos Streetscape project originally started in 2004 as a pure street reconstruction project. In 2007 the project scope was modified to develop Brazos Street into a streetscape project that aligns itself more closely with the City of Austin Great Streets program. MWM joined the project team as landscape architect at the beginning of the streetscape design process. The project includes the reconstruction of the entire ROW from Cesar Chavez Street to Eleventh Street.

MWM is responsible for design of landscaping and irrigation, coordination of streetscape elements with AIPP artist, street and landscape lighting, benches, bikes racks and the redesign of the Sixth Street bus stop and other associated amenities. MWM worked closely with project engineers to evaluate the location of existing telecommunication, electrical, traffic, water, wastewater and stormwater utilities to ensure that a viable streetscape would be created without requiring extensive relocation of the existing utilities.
