The site will include both new east-west streets and a new north-south street that will reconnect it to the city grid. Traffic relief at 1st and Michigan, North Capitol and Michigan, and on Channing as a whole are integral parts of our plan. VMP will build a transit hub near Michigan Ave. as a comfortable, convenient place to access bus, bike, and carshare options. The team will advocate tirelessly for the addition of premium transit options to the neighborhood in an effort to improve the ability to travel to and from the area. Finally, VMP plans to restore and expand the Olmsted Walk around the site and include hiker-biker trails through the site, improving the overall ability to traverse the entire site.
