Water Street

High density, multi-use planning concentrates on a site that links a fragmentary context of office buildings and transit into a waterfront Canal District in Las Colinas, Texas. The plan spatially links the Williams Square Plaza by SOM to a Water Square that is shaded by an overhead canopy. The main street is lined with high velocity retail and restaurants are planned for the shaded esplanade lining Lake Carolyn. Kevin Sloan Studio crafted the Water Street, Water Square plan and designed the urban shade structure.
