MODSTREET has just announced its partnership with Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) to serve as a preferred installer for the San Luis Valley Creative Placemaking Challenge. Headquartered in Durango, Colorado, MODSTREET is a trusted provider of innovatively designed outdoor parklets and other modular products for retailers as well as communities.
The San Luis Valley Creative Placemaking Challenge is an initiative from Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI) and Colorado Housing and Finance Authority (CHFA) that looks to invite fresh ideas and entrepreneurial solutions for community and economic development. Working in tandem with its partners, MODSTREET will be involved in the installation of its modular parklets in the towns of Antonito, Center, La Jara, and San Luis. By becoming a part of this project, the company is looking to play an important role in helping these communities re-imagine their downtown streetscape and strengthen their businesses.
“DCI is thrilled to build connections between the needs of local governments and the inspiration of entrepreneurs through placemaking,” said Katherine Correll, DCI Executive Director of Downtown Colorado, Inc. “We are excited to provide a platform to connect different resources in a coordinated initiative to support the entire San Luis Valley.”
The completely modular, high-quality, and flexible parklets from MODSTREET have zero construction and downtime. Most importantly, these systems require less than an hour to assemble and dismantle. These modular parking spaces are made of steel, and can withstand collisions. Keystone-shaped wedged connectors are used to connect different parts of these parklets. MODSTREET will install one 8×8 parklet with barnwood and corrugated metal paneling in each of the Colorado towns of Center, La Jara, San Luis, and Antonito.
“This was a wonderful partnership between MODSTREET and DCI to assist the towns of Center, La Jara, Antonito and San Luis in the San Luis Valley. Parklets are increasingly popular in cities and with the public, and this will only help to enhance downtown vitality in rural Colorado,” said Roger Zalneraitis, CEO of MODSTREET.
