Duane Street: Heritage Square and the 13th Street Alley


ADHDA presents the third of its merchant-focused series of short NEDTalks—Novel Efforts Downtown—with What’s Up Alley-Cat: A New Look for the 13th Street Alley, Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 6pm at the Lovell Showroom.

Participants of Wednesday’s NEDTalk will be asked to help with redesign ideas of the 13th Street alley, an important connector between Commercial and Duane Streets.  Share your ideas as moderator, Kevin Cronin, City of Astoria Community Development Director, leads a lively discussion on the opportunities and possibilities of this unique pedestrian connector in downtown Astoria.  

ADHDA’s Business Development Committee is hosting the NEDTalk after the City of Astoria’s day-long open house to receive public input on the concept design and redevelopment of Heritage Square (between Duane & Exchange Streets and 11th & 12th Streets).  The design team of Walker | Macy will be on hand to discuss the project, answer your questions, and gather your comments. Stop by any time between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at the Fort George Brewery Lovell Showroom.
