Western Addition Celebrates First Phase Of Buchanan Mall Redesign

For the past several months, a large number of Western Addition residents have gathered on Thursday evenings at the African American Art and Culture Complex to discuss the Buchanan Street Mall Activation Project. This Saturday, they’ll celebrate the completion of the first phase of the project with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

A number of improvements to the Mall have already been completed, including the construction of the gates, which mark the entrances to the Mall at each intersection, planters, and community seating areas painted by local children.
