San Marcos TX streetscape

This is a streetscape I completed during a charrette in San Marcos, TX with Placemakers (www.placemakers.com). The main purpose of the rendering was to illustrate all of the elements missing in the existing plan. This view highlights an active pedestrian street on the left and active civic space on the right. On the right side a transit center is oriented to the street while a museum at the rear is fronted on the town green space. A bus is shown on the right as well as bicyclist to show alternative transit. Appropriately scaled three story mixed use buildings line the street on the left, which help define the ‘outdoor room’ of the public streets and sidewalks. An active pedestrian street can include street trees, outdoor cafes, bike racks, wide sidewalks for multiple uses, pedestrian scaled light fixtures, and street furniture.
