James Street Plaza

Ludington, MI, 2nd Congressional District

This project transforms a temporary town square on a closed one-way street into an attractive and active community space that will serves Ludington residents with year-round outdoor recreational and cultural experiences. The area will take residents on a walk through Ludington’s history. The project will include event space with a permanent pavilion, a year-round bathroom structure, event storage, a fireplace, and a great public gathering place in the heart of downtown Ludington. It will be a public space asset to the downtown businesses that brings residents and tourists to the downtown to shop and linger. With these renovations the area will be able to house the farmers market, festivals and events, and become a gathering place that truly speaks of Ludington’s current atmosphere as well as honor its roots.
