Long Beach Transit Mall
Award of Merit Transportation
Long Beach Transit initiated a Transit Mall Streetscape Renovation project that included redesigning and reconstructing its three-block downtown transit mall. The design reflects a shoreline theme with eight wave-inspired, suspended tensile fabric canopies sheltering contemporary seating on a sand-textured concrete sidewalk. Illuminated canopies also offer shelter for real-time digital information screens. New pedestrian lighting between the shelters provides a pleasing nighttime experience for transit patrons, says landscape architect MIG.
