Kenmore Town Square

Located in the City of Kenmore’s burgeoning civic heart, the 20,000 SF site with its 5,000 SF Hangar building serves as a symbolic “living room” that celebrates the City’s rich history; provides opportunities for year-round gathering and discovery; and creates a flexible multi-purpose venue for recreation and events.

This young city sought to create a civic core and in 2017, the City of Kenmore hired HEWITT to create a community-owned, multifunctional urban amenity that would serve the growing needs of its citizens.

A Shared Vision

As prime, HEWITT facilitated a series of design workshops to gather input from the community, which informed the resulting goals and vision for the project: to be a pedestrian friendly destination, a flexible community gathering space that encourages discovery and delight, and to be a timeless public space that reflect the authentic character of Kenmore.

Authentic Sense of Place

Taking inspirational cues from Kenmore’s rich history and geography, the Town Square features elements that recall the layered context of lake edge, aviation, and nature.
