Why Here? Why Now?

State Street is steeped in symbolism and importance. It has a history and location that elevates it to the status of a “signature street,” one that should stand above others in appearance, purpose, function, and feeling.

Decades of change and benign neglect have compromised this in many stretches, but a spirit of revitalization and preservation, as well as a booming economy, are driving a call for elevating State Street’s role in the region.
