Tucker Northlake Community Improvement District
Tucker Downtown Grid Study
When originally platted in 1892, Tucker was laid out in a series of regularized blocks, streets and alleys.
Over time as the city developed, the downtown grid has been slowly eroded due to changing development patterns and the rise of America’s automobile-centric culture.
The study focus is to create a unique vision focused on restoring and celebrating the original, historic downtown grid system in a way that creates new, people- and pedestrian-oriented spaces. The plan envisions a wide range of typological improvements from simple tactical and temporary enhancements, to full infrastructural changes. The plan envisions opportunities for enhancing existing bike and ped connections, forging new links and creating a series of open spaces such as a town green.
