Syracuse University - Sims Drive

Sims Drive is the primary circulation corridor from the east to the campus center and Carrier Dome.  The design reconfigures drives and walks to improve pedestrian safety and make routes more intuitive.  The result is the transformation of an undesirable “back alley” appearance into an attractive setting on par with other areas of the campus.  

 

The design included an iconic gateway to the Mt. Olympus stairs as well as a new plaza area at the south end of Archbold Gymnasium for casual daily use and athletic event ‘tailgating’ use. Plans also included a bike lane along Euclid Avenue, modification and renovation of tennis courts, and conversion of tennis courts to basketball courts.  Scope included restoration of the monumental stone retaining wall, lighting, site furnishings and streetscape and foundation plantings. Green stormwater infrastructure facilities such as rain gardens and porous pavements were utilized.
