Skinker Boulevard at Washington University in St. Louis is a major regional arterial road providing freeway access for cars, and an important connector to areas with significant student housing nearby.


Schulze+Grassov’s urban design framework transforms the road into a safe multi-modal movement boulevard for local and passing users. The vision provides new public gardens, market areas, sidewalk cafes, and restaurants near nodes of existing people activity. Our design provides for improved sidewalks with new street lighting and separated bicycle tracks to connect the campus with hubs of off-campus student accommodation.


Phase 1 with improved lighting infrastructure was completed in 2015.
