Soon, the Preston Centre will have stunning green spaces as part of its revitalization efforts. One of these areas is ParkWalk, which will be a landscaped plaza accessible to the public during the day. The space will feature a sunken garden, a waterfall, and a small pond, making it a unique and thoughtful outdoor area. Inspired by New York's High Line Park, ParkWalk has the potential to be activated with benches, conversation areas, performances, and even food carts. It will offer a unique perspective of the city and connect two other Edwards Companies builds, the PNC Building and a new Corner of Broad and Young proposal.
To create an elevated park, the roof and walls of the existing skybridge will be removed, and landscaping added to create a public walkway above East Capital Street. The 1970s-era walkway, which currently runs from the Capital Plaza Parking Garage to the PNC Building, will also be widened in places and extended to South Third Street. Stairs and an elevator will provide public access to the space.
