The University of Chicago’s new 58th Street West is the redevelopment and enhancement of the heavily utilized East-West pedestrian thoroughfare through the heart of campus. The project includes a complete renovation of an existing vehicular street into a pedestrian-oriented gateway to the campus, creating a safe, functional, and beautifully detailed pedestrian experience. The new streetscape serves as an extension of the University’s Main Quadrangle, and an important connection between the biological and physical science campuses and several nearby institutes, centers, and academic offices.
