Phase 1 of a comprehensive plan for the renovation of downtown Lake Jackson is currently under construction. In collaboration with KBR the project engineers, White Oak Studio is revitalizing the historic downtown in this city of 30,000. Improvements include new utilities, storm drainage, roadways, street-parking, pedestrian walks and gathering spaces, enlivened by lighting and street furnishings. A primary design objective of the project is to enhance the pedestrian environment, including reducing the width of downtown streets and the scale of intersections. Urban design highlights the Mid-Century Modern heritage of the city’s beginnings, shaped by Frank Lloyd Wright protégé Alden Dow.
