Scarsdale Village Center: Streetscape Improvements
Scarsdale, New York


The Village of Scarsdale and the Scarsdale Business District Committee asked RGR to prepare design guidelines and construction documents for a $4.5M streetscape improvement project for the Village Center. Specific objectives included improved traffic circulation and enhanced on-street parking. The primary goal was to create a pedestrian-friendly environment for the Village's inhabitants.

RGR developed a simple, yet elegant, vocabulary of new paving materials, street furniture, lighting, and signage that would blend gracefully with the unique architecture of Scarsdale Village and impart a sense of place to the Village center.

New elements include bluestone sidewalks, granite curbs, World's Fair benches, and historic lighting fixtures. Granite block pavers create extended beds for street trees and promote traffic calming at pedestrian crossings.
