Halvorson Design in collaboration with HDR Inc. is working on redeveloping the massive open plaza in front of City Hall including the Government Center train station.  The vast open expanse of brick hardscape will be transformed with tree bosques and water-permeable pavers to reduce storm water runoff.  Gradual slopes will replace stairs to make it a more bicycle friendly transit hub.  Check out the greener future of City Hall Plaza at Halvorson Design’s website.
