Downtown Destination Vision
When an urban building becomes functionally obsolete, too costly to update and doesn’t contribute to the street, opportunities for new places present themselves. In Coldwater, the proposed removal of an old funeral home opened the door to create a place for community celebrations at the center of town, which is missing today. The new event lawn with loggia for farmer’s market, pavilion for indoor events, performance stage, memorial and great human comfort amenities creates a Place for all to experience throughout the year. The design also links the current identity of the “Four Corners” with City Hall uniting in a strong civic presence for Downtown Coldwater.
