The Space_Between Vacant Lot Activation

Please join us Join us Wednesday, April 9 at The SPACE_BETWEEN as we envision creative ways to activate the vacant lot between Valley Youth Theater and Taylor Place Student Housing.

This temporary vacant lot activation project, part of Phoenix Urban Design Week, will bring a new community space to Downtown in the shape of a backyard patio where residents, visitors, downtown employees and students can play, relax and commune. Join us and offer your suggestions for the space – a team of designers will be on hand to translate your vision and input from adjacent stakeholders into a site plan that the Downtown Phoenix Partnership will then implement.

Thank you to Valley Youth Theater for hosting us in their venue, can’t wait to have some of that creative energy to spill out into a great plan for the site! Feel free to invite anyone who may be interested in this project, more details and RSVP on Facebook.
