Putnam Triangle Plaza Made Permanent, Build-Out of Space to Come

The Department of Transportation approved the Fulton Area Business Alliance’s application to make the plaza permanent.

 

The Putnam Triangle Plaza in Clinton Hill is here to stay, and enhancements to the space are on the horizon. 

The Department of Transportation (DOT) approved the Fulton Area Business (FAB) Alliance's application to make the plaza permanent, forever closing off Putnam Avenue between Grand Avenue and Fulton street to any traffic other than pedestrian, Brownstoner reports.  

FAB Alliance Manager Phillip Kellogg told Brownstoner that the development will pave the way for a build-out of the new space, based on community input. More public design charettes, details and timelines will be released, he continued.

The plaza, installed by the DOT, celebrated its opening in September 2012 with a FAB Alliance-hosted block party, complete with music, art, dancing and activities for the kids. 

Though the news of the plaza's permanence comes is welcomed by many, some residents and business owners initially expressed concerns with the space, saying it would stop the "currents of the streets" and negatively impact businesses.
