Something's Happening in Williston

City of Williston Downtown Streetscape and Arcade

Williston’s Streetscape and Arcade project is a transformative endeavor aimed at revitalizing downtown Williston while preserving its historic charm. This project creates a place of renewed purpose and community by infusing new life and functionality into unique infrastructure.

The project includes the reopening of the historic downtown Arcade, which has been uninhabitable for years, and the introduction of a new community space in historic Parcel O. These elements combined breathe new life into the historic commercial fabric of downtown Williston.

Our design approach strikes a balance between honoring the traditional American Main Street and ensuring its preservation for future generations. Main Street underwent a restoration including a new awning, updated lighting, and handmade signage, inviting residents, visitors, and business owners alike.

The Arcade restoration connects Main Street to the new Firemen's Park in Parcel O, featuring carefully selected finishes to match existing structures and an 80' mural by C Stanley Creative celebrating the history of Williston.

Firemen's Park preserves historic facades of the old Fire Department and Coca Cola Bottling Plant, framing a new public park. Native plants and festive lighting provide an inviting atmosphere suitable for numerous events.

The Downtown Revitalization project in Williston showcases our commitment to clients’ wishes through this beautiful and adaptable space that honors the city’s vibrant history.
