What is a Parklet?
A parklet is a curbside parking area that has been converted into a seating area or other use space. Parklets are easily customizable and may include a platform, greenery, bike racks, or any number of other practical and design elements. Modular parklets are as customizable as legos. Components can be combined into any number of configurations and are easily removable or changeable.
Benefits of Parklets?
The obvious benefits of parklets for businesses include affordability, an increased footprint for serving customers, and an easily customizable way to change design elements for various events and seasons. Parklets range in cost from $8,000 to $100,000, with an average price tag of about $20,000, including design fees, permits, and materials. In areas with no other expansion area available, parklets are a great option and provide increased revenue to downtown districts by contributing an appealing outdoor space to gather and shop. Because downtown communities are continually evolving, parklets’ customizable features make them an excellent option for ongoing revitalization.
Additional benefits of parklets include the ease of maintaining social distance and addressing health needs. Parklets are generally 10×10 or 10×20. The limited footprint for each parklet provides for social distancing among groups, and the outdoor environment allows for the circulation of fresh air. Parklets also enable businesses to serve customers beyond required indoor seating limitations due to COVID-19.
Popularity of Parklets
The first parklet was designed in San Francisco in 2005. Since then, parklets can be found in major cities worldwide, including Philadelphia, Chicago, New Orleans, Seattle, Mexico City, and Montreal. Parklets serve as community park spaces, extended restaurant dining, outdoor spaces for bars, and the list of uses for parklets continues to grow rapidly. In Midtown Atlanta, plans for parklets visualize areas for bikes, seating, and art. In Fort Worth, officials are allowing temporary parklets as a pilot program to serve COVID-19 impacted businesses. As parklets gain popularity, they are becoming an integral part of the identity of cities and communities.
Many considerations go into building parklets. Some of them are practical. How will they affect rainwater drainage? How will traffic be affected? Will they block sightlines? What are city permit requirements? Other concerns are how to put together design features for both functionality and style. The goal of parklets is to enhance an area; therefore, the design must consider the current surroundings. It’s vital to utilize a parklet builder that understands all of these concerns and the vision for the space’s future.
Parklets are the perfect way to provide beauty and functionality. As the future of parklets evolves, we can help you utilize the opportunity to be a part of the journey. Contact us to help make your parklet vision a reality.
