The final FULTON STREET VISION PLAN will be a living, breathing document that will help guide the FAB Alliance and its partners as they establish priorities and advocate for enhancements to the Fulton area. The idea is to think of the concepts shown here in the context of an overall vision for Fulton Street that comes from inherent qualities of the physical spaces and reflects the character of the neighborhood. The ideas presented here are intended to inspire conversations about what is possible along Fulton Street.
The Fulton Area Business (FAB) Alliance would like to thank desigNYC and Executive Director, Laetitia Wolff, for connecting FAB with the talented architects that make up the “Fulton Street Vision Plan” design team. Their generous contribution of time and talent has been extraordinary:
