Architectural firm to prepare streetscape plan for 'Vulcan Corridor'

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Clarksville-Montgomery County Economic Development Council  has announced  that Hodgson Douglas LLC, a Nashville landscape architectural and urban design firm, will provide streetscape planning services for a stretch of College Street being called the “Vulcan Corridor.”

HDLA’s proposal covers approximately 3,000 linear feet along College Street from Kraft Street to Ninth Street. The firm will deliver streetscape planning that will include:

  •  A hardscape finishes plan depicting paving patterns and finishes, product and detail references. 

  • Full planting  plans and schedules for all landscaped areas of the streetscape.

  • Full specifications for an irrigation plan and system. 

“HDLA seeks authenticity by honoring local history and natural context while also pursuing imaginative and innovative solutions,” HDLA Partner Richie Jones said.  “We appreciate the opportunity to work with the Economic Development Council on this exciting project.” 

HDLA is no stranger to Clarksville. The Downtown Commons was initially an HDLA civic design to redefine the core of Downtown Clarksville, serving retailers, restaurants, residents and visitors through the creation of a gathering place for the community. 

Money for HDLA to complete the streetscape contract for the EDC comes from the nonprofit Aspire Clarksville Foundation, which funds projects to improve the economy and livability of Clarksville-Montgomery County. 

“Completion of a streetscape plan will pave the way for new development by accelerating the due-diligence and planning required for potential incoming investors, as well as provide a much-needed face-lift to the area for our residents, visitors, APSU students and potential recruits,” said Lawson Mabry, Aspire Chairman. 

Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts said community leaders see the streetscape plan as the appropriate next step toward repurposing the Vulcan Corp. site. 

"This streetscape planning dovetails perfectly with our vision for redevelopment of the Vulcan property and creating a new gateway to APSU and downtown. We are grateful for Aspire’s investment to get the ball rolling and start the planning necessary to reshape the look and feel of this important  thoroughfare," Mayor Pitts said.
