Tempe Streetcar

Tempe Streetcar

Logan Simpson is the lead urban designer and landscape architect for this high-profile alternative transportation project that is being developed on an accelerated timeline to accommodate federal funding requirements. The project includes 14 stops in both a center two-way and side one-way loop. The streetcar will serve the historic Mill Avenue retail district, Arizona State University’s main campus, Tempe Town Lake’s Marina Heights redevelopment, and the rapidly growing new and historic residential neighborhoods south of downtown. The primary goal of this federally funded urban transportation project, is to surgically integrate the streetcar into the existing urban fabric minimizing its impact on an already vibrant streetscape.
