Tower Street to lead the way - School of Architecture plans project to transform downtown
THE CARIBBEAN School of Architecture (CSA) has developed a plan to transform Tower Street in downtown Kingston into a model project for the rebirth of the commercial district.
The fourth-year architecture class at the CSA with its 48 students will lead the project, which has been broken into four sections.
Twelve students will be assigned to each section.
The project will be guided by a member of the Jamaican Institute of Architects, while the Landscape Architecture Faculty at the University of Technology (UTech) has also made it a project for their class.
The School of the Built Environment at UTech will be providing the bills of quantities and estimates for the project assisted and mentored by members of the Jamaican Institute of Quantity Surveyors.
The design and documentation work for the new-look Tower Street is expected to be prepared for a presentation at the CSA on Friday.
Drawings and illustrations of the proposed work will also be presented on Friday.
