Downtown Belleville Streetscape

In 2018, The City of Belleville completed its City Centre Revitalization and Redevelopment Project, which aimed to renew aged infrastructure of their historic downtown core and attract new residents and investments to the area. The project included reconstructing heritage buildings, updating and replacing underground utilities, as well as substantial surface work, such as the reconstruction of road networks, boulevards and sidewalks and the installation of new architectural landscape elements. Among the highlights, installation of new asphalt, concrete and clay brick pavers extending beyond the sidewalk, forming patterned pedestrian crosswalks. The streets were also accessorized with new street lamps and traffic signals, signage, canopies, granite-curb planters and trees, making a renewed pleasing public space. Brown + Storey Architects chose Unilock Rectangle pavers with Series finish, as its unique surface texture and long-term performance make it an excellent choice for streetscape applications. Creating a great place for both community members and small businesses to flourish, the city’s efforts to renew its downtown have undoubtedly laid the foundation for future growth and development.
