The Dogpatch Arts Plaza will transform an unsightly dead-end at 19th Street just west of Indiana Street in to a new public plaza filled with art. The 8,077 square foot space, designed CMG landscape architecture, will "combine Burning Man's artistic spirit with the Dogpatch's industrial heritage." Tables, trees and pedestrian-scaled lighting will activate the plaza, which is to include a small amphitheater along its western edge, and rotating art installations in its southeastern corner. The project is being developed by UP Urban, and will cost an estimated $1.2 Million to complete. The plaza will receive some of its funding from impact fees for 650 Indiana, where Build Inc is drawing up plans for 111 new apartments spread out over two five-story buildings. The plans also include space for a 1,700 square foot cafe, which will open on to the new plaza. Construction on the Dogpatch's artsy new public space is expected to begin in August 2014 and wrap up by 2016.
