Park on Brady

In 2008, GKFF purchased the former Central Freight parking lot (one square block between Cameron Street, Cincinnati Avenue, Brady Street and Boston Avenue) and is investing $8 million to convert it into an urban green space and Brady Arts District town square. The park, designed by SWA Group of Sausalito, Calif., will feature a pavilion, water feature, café and performance space for cinema, theatre, music, dance, festivals and markets.

  • An 11,000 square-foot covered pavilion
  • Equipped stage and canopy
