WASHINGTON SQUARE PARK
Coen+Partners is leading the redevelopment of Washington Square Park, a critical green connection from downtown Kansas City into the surrounding neighborhoods. The park links at the terminus of the new streetcar line and will serve as an iconic destination that is culturally and financially self-sustaining. The park concept alters the existing triangular space into a linear park bridging a physical void and integrating residential and commercial development within the urban super-block.
Coen+Partners is leading the design and coordination of the $100M+ public private partnership that will yield over $200M in additional tax base, a critical transit node, and an active open space for residents and visitors alike.
