Monterey Downtown Revitalization Plan
Wald, Ruhnke & Dost Architects and the Slavik Group designed a plan for the revitalization of Downtown Monterey. It optimizes the natural environment and outlines a series of phased revitalization efforts, all of which support increased tourism, commerce, and property ownership. The plan has been reviewed extensively by City stakeholders and residents and has gained overwhelming support among City staff as well as property owners. The outdoor seating area in front of Cafe Trieste on Alavarado Street is one of the first of these projects to be completed.
WR&D and the Slavik Group are helping the revitalization move forward by providing new designs for downtown plazas and streetscapes through a contract awarded by the City of Monterey in April 2011, following a public bid process.
