South Parking Place

South Parking Place was conceived as an urban destination within downtown Lake Jackson. The under-utilized existing parking lot fronts a major city thoroughfare and lies adjacent to the historic architecture office/museum of Alden Dow, the celebrated designer of Lake Jackson. White Oak Studio imagined reinvention of the space to create a unique event plaza that includes a children’s play space, community pavilion, event lawn, extensive plantings, and areas for future commercial development. Construction is planned for 2012.
