Downtown Gateways addresses the need to create welcoming, dynamic and aesthetically-pleasing “gateways” into the heart of downtown.

Town Green District identifies and improves through placemaking efforts key areas that highly impact the experience and appearance of the rest of Downtown. We have heard an extraordinary amount of concerns from property owners, pedestrians, visitors, city officials, and people living and working in Downtown about the “unwelcoming,” “dirty,” “intimidating,” “unloved” appearance and experience at the Chapel & State Intersection and bridge – a crucial cross point between Wooster Square and Downtown New Haven. With ongoing input from the community, design expertise from local design studio Atelier Cue, crucial insight from the City’s transit-oriented development plans, and the example of other cities’ successful projects, Town Green District is spearheading this revitalization effort to create a great “welcome” into Downtown New Haven.
