Wilson Underline: A Public Space under Wilson L Stop
Imagine… reclaiming a dark and dingy space below the Wilson ‘L’ station’s tracks into a vibrant, safe, and welcoming public space.
Chicago is paying attention to how we can bring innovative public space concepts to our community by capitalizing on ongoing public infrastructure improvements.
In 2015, Uptown United and its Development Partners committee joined forces with the Wilson L Public Space Committee, Graceland Wilson Neighbors Association, and many other community stakeholders to imagine such a design. The plan presents an alternative to the current plans for a fenced-in parking lot.
Over the last year the groups have incorporated feedback from community stakeholders and property and business owners adjacent to the site into their final design proposal.
