Mount Vernon Square Design Workbook

Image of Mount Vernon Square Design Workbook cover

The Mount Vernon Square Design Workbook was created to initiate a civic dialogue about how to tranform the Mount Vernon Square District into a great new destination for Washingtonians - one that is vibrant, intermixing a great variety of uses in a design that is unique. This workbook demonstrated the potential of the district, emphasized its spirit, and offered possible directions for a new vision to come to fruition as a great symbolic landmark of the local city. It also provided an urban design framework and acted as a preliminary guide for new and repositioned development, so that collectively, the area could become a distinctive gateway to the city for convention-goers and tourists and a place of gatherings and fun for residents.
