The first priority of the Armature is to accommodate pedestrians and then the cyclists. Custom furniture, bike racks and lamp posts along the street have been created specifically for the Armature to create an inviting atmosphere where people can linger and enjoy the nearby amenities. In addition to custom furniture, all curbs along the street are rolled and easily mountable. Cyclists can travel the entire length of the Armature in both directions, connecting to the City’s larger bike network.
The Armature is the first City-led “green street” pilot project and the heart of The Quarters Downtown. This pedestrian-oriented corridor runs along 96 Street from Jasper Avenue to 103 A Avenue, connecting the four unique districts that make up The Quarters Downtown. Upon full build-out, it will contain all-season parks, urban plazas, shopping, eating, and entertainment areas, and will serve as a hub for all commercial and social activities in the area.
