West Pearl Streetscape
Mundus Bishop’s design for Boulder’s West Pearl Street expands upon the area’s characteristic bohemian vibe, with a new pedestrian experience from the Pearl Street Mall towards the base of the foothills. Illuminated sandstone totems provide wayfinding, improved sidewalks and crosswalks assure connectivity and safety, and new bicycle parking encourages alternative transportation. Pedestrian and bicycle traffic are now connected with the rest of the city. Shaded gathering spaces, anchored by sandstone benches encourage community engagement, and emphasize the eclectic character and essential grittiness of West Pearl.
