Johnson City, TN
Parking Lot, Park
2019 marked the 150th anniversary of Johnson City, Tennessee. With this in mind, the small city had several celebrations planned, many centered in its new showcase park in the heart of downtown – King Commons.
Officially opened on April 6, 2018, the original purpose of the project was to help mitigate recurring problems with flooding. However, plans for the former truck rental facility eventually evolved into a more comprehensive outdoor space that doubles as a place to draw more people downtown and to host public events.
