Carroll Plaza

Project History

The Planning and Special Projects Divisions have been working collaboratively with DPW, the Hanover Theatre and the Downtown BID on the reconstruction of Carroll Plaza in Federal Square. The goal is for the plaza outside of the Hanover Theatre to become a vibrant public space that will better serve the community by providing space for active use by residents, visitors and cultural partners. It will feature plantings, festoon lights, a seating area and a raised performance stage.

The project will also include a public art installation, titled "Calliope" by Ross Miller, composed of stainless steel and LED lights. This piece, accompanied by a water feature, will give nod to the in-house organ so popular in entertainment venues and churches in the early 20th-century.
