Uplifting Communities Through Downtown Revitalizations
From street furniture, native landscaping, and decorative paving, to sewer replacements and underground utilities, McGill provides a complete package of downtown streetscape revitalization services. Our land planning and recreation team is passionate about working with communities and their stakeholders to develop a design, budget, and schedule to bring each one of their visions to life.
Improving a downtown has multiple benefits, such as increasing economic activity by creating better access to businesses; increasing safety through improved sidewalks, crosswalks, parking, and traffic patterns; and building upon a community’s identity and character. McGill has completed 22 streetscapes across North Carolina (see graphic below). Several of these projects have received NC Main Street awards. These projects include:
Centennial Park, City of Bessemer City (pictured above)
Award of Merit – Best Outdoor Space Improvement
