Oakley Main Street Realignment

Location: Oakley


PGAdesign redesigned the main street of Oakley to encourage walkability and spur economic investment in a pedestrian-oriented downtown. The project’s vision prompted investment, and PGAdesign helped transform a wide, vehicle-dominated strip of road into a more cloistered, walkable street.

The final design incorporates rain gardens, bike paths, unique paving along the retail strip, custom rammed-earth walls for seating, and other seating opportunities.

Since the project’s 2013 completion, several formerly empty storefronts now host new shops and services (a taqueria, a cupcake bakery, and a sports store, to name a few). Landowners of adjacent properties have similarly rebuilt their storefronts to attract tenants.
