Fulton Street Pedestrian Mall

Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc. tasked Manning Architects with the design of a new, 450-room luxury hotel, challenging our firm to integrate the new structure into the existing, historic urban fabric of the Central Business District. As part of this endeavor, Manning Architects designed a pedestrian street scape that lined one side of the hotel. Key design elements of Fulton Street included entrance portal facing the casino, Harrah’s garage and the lobby to the casino tunnel, lush landscape, and a sculptural Edwardian bandstand. The mall also includes sidewalk dining for tenant food and beverage outlets on both sides of the street.
