What was once a derelict, non-descript parking lot, is now a beautiful community green, one that offers up a true “sense of place” for downtown Lake City, South Carolina. Re-configured parking was created to recognize the need to support retail on Main Street, while the space itself serves as a venue for a variety of large and small community-based events. Beneath the open grassed area is a series of geothermal wells – i.e. geothermal energy field – that are linked together to sustainably serve the adjacent building’s energy needs. Also featured, is a new 750-square foot performance stage.
