TRANSPORTATION CONTINUED

Pedestrian connections across the roadways are proposed at all three corners of ONE PARK at signalized intersections. This increases the connections to the surrounding neighborhoods and this development’s connections to neighborhoods, Butchertown Greenway, and Cherokee Park. The streetscape along Lexington, Grinstead, and Etley will be greatly enhanced by the proposed development. The area currently has broken sidewalks, low amount of landscaping and tree canopy, and little pedestrian lighting. The proposed development presents a cohesive streetscape that unifies the block and vastly improves the pedestrian environment. The pedestrian walking/clear zone will have a minimum of 5’ clear of obstacles. Streetside amenities include café seating, bike parking, pedestrian lighting, and street trees.

ONE PARK furthers the 2015 Lexington Road Corridor Transportation Plan by providing a destination with positive pedestrian uses in the neighborhood, as well as providing good examples of streetscapes.

Through the Charrette process, the neighbors highlighted a need for a stronger access point for pedestrians to cross Grinstead. Currently, the only crossing is at Lexington and Grinstead. ONE PARK proposes an improved, signalized intersection at Grinstead and Etley that would allow for a pedestrian crossing in a safe manner. This also works with the TARC stop along Grinstead where bus riders can get off at the Park and then travel back by catching a bus going in the other direction.
