Revitalizing Historic Murphy Avenue

We are proud to be a part of the City of Sunnyvale’s recent revitalization of its Murphy Avenue historic district. The goal of this 76,000 sq. ft. streetscape project was to reorganize the street to better accommodate increased pedestrian traffic, outdoor restaurant seating, and civic events. This was accomplished by installing decorative pavers in the roadway, colored concrete sidewalks, and new site furnishings, including DuMor model 58 benches and bike racks. Designed by Royston Hanamoto Alley and Abey Landscape Architecture + Planning after six months of organized public workshops, the finished project has improved pedestrian linkages between retail, transit links, and new high density housing. The streetscape construction was funded by a Transportation for Livable Cities planning grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission which encourages cities to offer compact development, transportation choices, maximize community involvement in planning, and support neighborhood revitalization and place making.
