Design for Distancing Curbside Commons birdseye view 4800 Harford Rd


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Curbside Commons Design for Distancing project converted a parking lane into public space for safe, physically distanced community gathering, shopping, services, and culinary encounters along Hamilton-Lauraville’s main street, Harford Road. Led by Graham Projects, the design-build team included Property Consulting, Inc., LANNINGSMITH, and Annie Howe Paper Cuts. The team collaborated with the Hamilton-Lauraville Main Street and adjacent small businesses to create public spaces that meet their needs to stay open while maintaining COVID-19 precautions, including outdoor seating, distancing markers, event space, pedestrian and wheelchair accessibility, public art, signage, bicycle parking, and artful wayfinding.
