Herritage Street Streetscape Concept Plan

Pride of Kinston

Kinston, NC


The Pride of Kinston focuses upon revitalization of Kinston’s Downtown.  In efforts to undertake visual and functional enhancements to its streetscapes, Rivers was engaged to develop a Schematic Concept Illustration of a typical block of Herritage Street.  Using photorealistic imaging and three-dimensional modeling, Rivers developed an illustration of an improved Herritage Street including removal of overhead utility lines and the installation of traffic calming/pedestrian friendly hardscapes.  The illustration depicts decorative pavements, enhanced furnishings and lighting, as well as a public plaza at the CSS Neuse Ironclad replica attraction.  This illustration became a marketing tool by the Pride of Kinston to garner support and enthusiasm for design and construction of improvements.
