Through the Gulfton Green idea, Connect Community is working with community stakeholders to reimagine one of the most oft-visited corners of the Gulfton community, and the de facto center of Gulfton life, into a more vibrant, walkable and community-centered area. The goal is to leverage the existing investments and city-controlled land to create this hub. The overall vision is to connect service providers through a redesign of an unused green space into a multi-use park with green ‘fingers’ connecting to new high-quality mixed-income housing, neighbor- hood-inspired retail, a tech/maker incubator, an expand- ed library and structured parking to replace surface-lot parking.
