Employees of Seamon Whiteside + Associates (SW+A) and its Urban Edge Studio branch are back in the office today after conducting a week long charrette process in Greenwood, SC. Three plans were drawn up for a new farmer’s market and historical railroad center in the Uptown region of Greenwood.
Throughout the week, the designers took ideas, suggestions and votes from community members on how they envision their farmer’s market and railroad museum. Over the next three months, SW+A be inputting the information gathered from focus group meetings into a final design for June.
Take a look at the three proposed plans:
The Green Scheme calls for 42 stalls in the farmer’s market, as well as a multipurpose pavilion, playground and three rail cars relocated from the current railroad historical center to the site.
The Red Scheme provides 32 stalls for the farmer’s market, plus room for additional stalls inside a multipurpose pavilion. The plan makes room for a demonstration garden and seven rail cars.The last of the three plans, is the Yellow Scheme. It houses 38 stalls for the farmer’s market, a plaza area, playground and six relocated rail cars.
