Alley Converted to Welcoming Walkway – Jeff Park

Alley Converted to Welcoming Walkway – Jeff Park

On Oct. 11, In the alley at 4870 N. Milwaukee, next to the Popeye’s, Archeworks’ Good City Group will kick off the Last Mile, community based initiative to encourage placemaking and urban mobility.

Borrowing a de facto shortcut used by hundreds of commuters to reach the Jefferson Park CTA station, the kick off event will transform the narrow alley into an urban passage inviting all to reflect upon their daily commutes and the final mile to and from their destinations.

I hope you can check out the inventive use of the space.

The Good City Group is a salon-style urban design group of architects, industrial designers, urban planners, design strategists, IT professionals and policymakers from diverse practice areas dedicated to healthy, sustainable cities.
