Once the poster child of Norman Rockwellâ€™s Americana, Norman, Oklahoma is now the poster child for suburban sprawl. This project attempts to remedy this tragic shift through the implementation of high-density housing along Main Street. Through air-rights development, apartments or condominiums may be built above the big-box or strip mall parking lots immediately along a given street right-of-way. Sidewalks would be planted with street trees to further encourage walking. These improvements would modify the proportions of the urban corridor, defining a much more pedestrian-friendly scale. This urban restructuring brings people and housing closer to cultural and commercial amenities.
