JAMESTOWN – A new plaza project in Downtown Jamestown is nearing completion.
Jamestown Renaissance Corporation (JRC) announced Friday that phase two of construction at Winter Garden Plaza that installed permanent tensile structure at the west end, extended pavers, additional lighting, landscaping, benches, and bike racks will be complete soon.
JRC officials said phase two of the project was made possible with funding from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, as well as local support from the Gebbie Foundation.
The first phase of the project was completed in 2011 to replace the former Winter Garden Theater with programmable public space.
Winter Garden Plaza features the Active Artists Alliance’s Third Thursday Concert Series, held on the third Thursday of each month from May-September.
In addition, the Whirlybird Music & Arts Festival will make use of the space from July 18-20, and Friday night shows will be put on by the Wine Cellar throughout the summer.
