Abstract: This project will focus on the revitilization of Calle Loiza streetscape in Santurce, Puerto Rico. Santurce is one of the most popoulous "barrios" in Puerto Rico and a vibrant urban core of the city of San Juan. The district of Santurce houses many business and local establishments. Calle Loiza is a narrow avenue that cuts through three of the most popoulous sub-barrios of Santurce in the north. The three sub-barrios that are linked by Calle Loiza are: Ocean Park, Villa Palmera, and Loiza. Calle Loiza originally was intended to be a residential link between the three sub-barrios, but has evolved to have several institutional structures of architectonic value and historical importance. Although Calle Loiza is a very strong link between these sub-barrios, it also provides a connection to the rest of the urban fabric of San Juan. Over the years Calle Loiza has become a popular destination for locals and tourist searching for bars clubs, restaurants and shopping; but the once residential avenue has not physically evolved to accommodate more traffic pedestrians, and parking than the past. Calle Loiza is a main street for the city of Santurce that needs better pedestrian, parking and traffic opportunities. In this project the goal will be to create a master plan for Calle Loiza that educates the locals and the Puertorrican government about the significance of streetscape design. The site will include all of Calle Loiza. In the east the avenue begins when Isla Verde Avenue turns into Calle Loiza and in the west it will end at Expresso Baldorioty de Castro. Parque Barbosa will be included in the limits of work, since this park borders Calle Loiza. Willa Palmera Ocean Park, and Loiza will also be included in the site boundaries, since they are all strongly linked by Calle Loiza. The master plan for Calle Loiza was developed by conducting research, collection of necessary data, inventory of existing site conditions, program development, site visits, site analysis, site synthesis, developing conceptual designs, elevations, and perspective drawings to illustrate the new design. Like I mentioned before some of the issues that were directly addressed by this streetscape and urban redevelopment project are: adaptive use, vehicular circulation, pedestrian circulation, urban connectivity, parking and other urban design principles.

+ BACKGROUND


DE UN BARRIO. THIS BOOK WAS A GREAT
TOOL FOR INFORMATION FOR THE
MASTER PLAN OF SANTURCE. THIS BOOK
ALSO WAS A GREAT TOOL TO LOOK AT
CASE STUDIES OF THE DESIGN FOR THIS
BARRIO.

ANOTHER BOOK THAT WAS A GREAT TOOL
FOR APPROACHING THIS PROJECT IS A
REVITALIZATION PROPOSAL FOR LA PUN-
TILLA, OLD SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO: A
STUDY OF ADAPTIVE USE AND COMPAT-
IBLE DESIGN. THIS BOOK IS A CASE
STUDY FOR THE REVITALIZATION OF LA
PUNTILLA AND ALTHOUGH THIS IS NOT AN
AREA IN MY SITE IT PROVIDES A GREAT
DEAL OF INFORMATION ABOUT BARRIOS
AND ADAPTIVE USE. FINALLY ANOTHER
SOURCE THAT I LOOKED INTO FOR BACK-
GROUND INFORMATION TO HELP ME THRU
MY DESIGN WAS THE WEBSITE:
Http://www.prfrogui.com/home/mapasPR3.
htm. THIS WEBSITE DESCRIBES THE
CHARACTER AND HISTORY OF CALLE
LOIZA AND PUERTO RICO IN GREAT
DETAIL. SENSE OF PLACE WAS SOME-
THING THAT I HAD TO UNDERSTAND IN
GREAT DETAIL BEFORE I APPROACHED
THIS PROJECT. THIS STUDY HELPED ME
UNDERSTAND THE HISTORY AND SENSE
OF PLACE OF THE AREA VERY CLEARLY.

PROJECT VALUE : I CHOSE TO UNDERTAKE
THIS STREETSCAPE REVITALIZATION
PROJECT IN CALLE LOIZA FOR VARIOUS
REASONS. FIRST OF ALL I CHOSE THIS
PROJECT BECAUSE: IN THE FUTURE AS A
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT I WANT TO
PURSUE URBAN DESIGN PROJECTS. THIS
PROJECT PROVIDED ME WITH THE OPPOR-
TUNITY TO GAIN BACKGROUND KNOWL-
EDGE OF THE TYPE OF URBAN DESIGN

BEACH. PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN THIS AREA AND TOURIST DO NOT TAKE THE BEACH
FOR GRANTED IT IS A VERY USED AMENITY. IT IS COMMON FOR TOURIST TO COME
TO OCEAN PARK TO ACCESS THE BEACH. PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER PUERTO RICO
WILL TRAVEL TO OCEAN PARK DURING THE HOLIDAYS TO ENJOY A DAY OUT ON THE
SUN. OVER THE YEARS A YOU CAN SEE IN THE BOTTOM PHOTOGRAPH MANY HIGH
RISES HAVE DEVELOPED ALONG BEACH FRONT PROPERTIES. DUE TO LACK OF REGU-
LATIONS AND ZONING LAWS THE HIGH RISES HAVE ALSO STARTED TO SPREAD
ALONG THE BEACH FROM PROPERTIES i

+ LANDUSE OPPORTUNITIES

THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO CREATE A
ZONING CODE FOR THE AREA, BECAUSE
LANDUSE IS VERY MIXED. ZONING COULD
BENEFIT THIS ARE TO PREVENT HIGH
RISES FROM COMING UP IN NEIGHBOR-
HOODS AND TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM
OPENING BUSINESSES FROM THEIR RESI-
DENCES. AN OPPORTUNITY ALSO EXIST TO
CREATE A BETTER SENSE OF COMMUNITY
BY PROVIDING MORE OPEN SPACE AND
REGULATING LAND USES IN NEIGHBOR-
HOODS. ALTHOUGH ALONG CALLE LOIZA
THERE IS ALLOT OF COMMERCIAL ACTIV-
ITY, THERE ARE MANY RESIDENCES OVER
STORES. CALLE LOIZA CAN BENEFIT FROM
PROVIDING MORE MIXED USE OPPORTUNI-
TIES TO MAKE IT A VERY DYNAMIC AREA IN
THE SITE. I


LANDUSE LIMITATIONS


THE MAIN LIMITATION OF THIS PROJ-
ECT IS THAT THE ARE IS ALREADY
VERY DENSE AND THERE IS VERY
LITTLE OPPORTUNITY FOR INFILL.
ALSO THERE IS NOT MANY VACANT
LOTS AVAILABLE IN THIS AREA. ANOTH-
ER BIG LIMITATION IN THE SITE IS
THAT THE SCHOOLS AND MANY RESI-
DENCES IN THE SITE ARE FENCED IN
CAUSING MUCH SEGMENTATION
ALONG THE AREA.

ALTHOUGH CALLE LOIZA IS SERVED BY A
FEW BUS ROUTES THE STREET DOES NOT
HAVE DESIGNED BUS STOPS. THERE IS AN
OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE BUS SHELTERS
AND DRIVEWAYS FOR BUS STOPS. AROUND
THE PEDESTRIAN NODES THERE IS A LACK
OF OPEN SPACE. THE BUS STOPS AND
NODES ARE LOCATED AROUND THE SAME
AREA SO THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO
DEVELOP GREEN OPEN SPACE AROUND THE
NODES. CALLE LOIZA IS ALSO LACKING
OUTDOOR LANDMARKS AND FUNCTIONS.
ALTHOUGH THE STREET IS LACKING THESE

EXISTS. + PEDESTRIAN/LANDMARK

THE ARE IS VERY DENSE AND TO
CREATE OPEN SPACE AND LANDMARKS
PLATS OF LAND WILL NEED TO BE AC-
QUIRED. TO PROVIDE BUS STOPS AND
SHELTERS LAND WILL ALSO NEED TO

OTHER LIMITATION. THE USERS OF
THE AREA ARE VERY DEPENDABLE ON

TO DECREASE PARKING AND ENCOURAGE WALKING PARKING GA-
RAGES AND HUBS CAN BE BUILT. PARKING GARAGES CAN PROVIDE
PEOPLE WITH PARKING SPACES AND ELIMINATE ON STREET PARK-
ING. THE VEHICULAR NODES CAN ALSO BECOME LANDMARKS FOR
DRIVERS. THE LANDMARKS CAN WORK AS IDENTITY FEATURES
PROVIDING RECOGNITION OF ARRIVAL AND EXIT OF LOIZA
STREET. THE LANDMARKS AND EXPANSION OF OTHER STREETS TO
TWO WAYS CAN ALSO IMPROVE THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE. THE
STREET IN THE AREA LACK HIERARCHY, WHICH IS A BIG REASON
WHY PEOPLE WILL DRIVE THRU RESIDENTIAL ROADS TO REACH
CALLE LOIZA.







+ PEDESTRIAN/LANDMARK
LIMITATIONS
THE AREA IS VERY DENSE AND IT WILL BE A DIFFICULT
TASK TO EXPAND ROADS. ANOTHER LIMITATION IS THAT
PEOPLE IN THE AREA USE ON STREET PARKING TO
REACH THEIR DESTINATIONS SO IT WILL BE A CHAL-
LENGE TO CHANGE THAT CULTURE. LIKE I MENTIONED
BEFORE THE AREA IS VERY DENSE AND THERE IS VERY
LIMITED PARKING. PROVIDING MORE PARKING OPPOR-
TUNITIES WILL ALSO BE A CHALLENGE IN THIS URBAN
CENTER.

+ MIRACLE MILE MIAMI, FL

CONTEXT COMPARISON:

MIRACLE MILE IS A SECTION OF CORAL WAY
(SOUTHEAST 22ND STREET AT THIS SEGMENT) BE-
TWEEN DOUGLAS ROAD (SOUTHWEST 37TH AVENUE)
AND LE JEUNE ROAD (SOUTHWEST 42ND AVE) IN THE
CITY OF CORAL GABLES, FL. IT IS THE MAIN EA,-. 3
ROAD THROUGH THE CITY'S DOWNTOWN CEI JTP' .
BUSINESS DISTRICT, HAVING MANY SHOPP: j11.'3
AND RESTAURANTS. THE SURROUNDINGS OF TI-
INCLUDE RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL, AND i 1ILJU1
COMMUNITIES. '''

SCALE COMPARISON:

THE SCALE OF THE SITE IS A MILE LONG STREET'l
THAT BRINGS TOGETHER THE SURROUNDi, I- '
FABRIC MUCH LIKE CALLE LOIZA.

CONSTRAINTS AND DEFICIENCIES: .

ONE OF THE BIGGEST DEFICIENCIES OF MIRACLE MILE
IN MIAMI IS THAT IT IS NOT A MIXED USE SITE. MOST
OF THE SITE IS FOR COMMERCIAL USE. THE SITE ALSO
LACKS THE AVAILABILITY OF DIFFERENT FULrJC Or IS.
THE MAIN FUNCTIONS OF THIS SIIE ARE ,3H'OPP G r J
DINNING. ALTHOUGH THE SITE ITSELF CArI IE i' A
PIECE OF THE AREAS HISTORY IT DOES [ iT T ,ITO
ACCOUNT THE HISTORY BEFORE THE SI-E W\V
MIRCALE MILE HAS VERY CLEAR LANDMARKS' \
ENETER AND LEAVE. THE SITE IS HEAVILY U1.: -
DURING THE DAY BUT VERY UNDERUSED EI. SIRl
NIGHT TIME. m


CALLE LOIZA CAN BENEFIT FROM THE ADDITION OF
THIS LANDMARKS AND STREETSCAPE VEGETATIONS CAN
MAKE THE SITE MORE WALKABLE. THE ADDITION OF
STREETSCAPE VEGETATION CAN ALSO IMPROVE
AESTHETICS AND PROVIDE BETTER MICROCLIMATE.

THE SECOND PHOTOGRAPH BELOW IS ALSO SHOWING
THE OFFSTREET PARKING THAT IS AVAILABLE IN A BIG CONSTRAINT OF THIS PLAZA IS THAT IT LACKS
MIRACLE MILE. THIS TYPE OF PARKING OPPORTUNITIES CONNECTIVITY TO THE REST OF THE URBAN FABRIC.

TO THE PLAZA PEDESTRIAN HAVE TO CROSS TRAF-


IDEAS FOR CALLE LOIZA:

-SO[ 1E :OF THE IDEAS THAT I CAN USE FROM THIS PROJ-
EC:T Ari APPLY TO CALLE LOIZA ARE SCALE, MATERI-
ALS, BUILDING CHARACTER, VEGETATION, FUNCTION,
ArJD, HiSTORY. THE MATERIAL AND COLORS OF THE MA-
S.. ..TERI'LS ARE OF SPANISH ORIGIN AND THAT IS SOME-
THING THAT I CAN APPLY IN CALLE LOIZA. CALLE LOIZA
AND PUERTO RICO FOR THAT MATTER ARE RICH IN
SPANISH HISTORY AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT CAN
BECOME APPARENT IN MY SITE. ALSO THE BUILDINGS
IN CALLE LOIZA COULD USE A FACE LIFT AND SPANISH
STYLE MAY BE A GOOD WAY TO LOOK. CALLE LOIZA
LACKS OPEN SPACE AND VEGETATION AND IT WOULD
BE A GOOD IDEA TO IMPLEMENT SMALL PARKS LIKE

VARDS. THEY WOULD WORK TO GIVE THE USER A SENSE OF ARRIVAL TO CALLE LOIZA. THE IMPLEMENTA-
TION OF PARKING GARAGES WOULD ELIMINATE ON STREET PARKING AND ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO WALK
THE SITE FROM THE PARKING GARAGES. THE ARE AROUND THE PARKING GARAGES COULD ALSO BE USED AS
HUBS FOR PEDESTRIANS BY PROVIDING RETAIL AND DINNING OPPORTUNITIES AS WELL AS OPEN PLAZA
SPACE AROUND THE GARAGES. THE BUS STOPS COULD ALSO BE LOCATED AROUND THESE HUBS TO ENCOUR-
AGE THESE AREAS TO GAIN THE DYNAMICS OF A PEDESTRIAN HUB. THE GARAGES COULD ALSO BE USED TO
GENERATE REVENUE FOR THE UP KEEPING OF CALLE LOIZA BY HAVING THE GARAGES CHARGE A SMALL FEE
FOR THE USE OF A PARKING SPACE. IN TERMS OF ZONING CALLE LOIZA COULD BE LIMITED TO TWO TO
THREE STORY BUILDINGS. CALLE LOIZA IS A NARROW AVENUE BUT BIG ENOUGH TO DESIGNATE TWO LANES
AND PROVIDE SOME VEGETATION. THE VEGETATION WOULD HAVE TO BE LIMITED TO UPRIGHT TREES OR
PALMS, SINCE THE BUILDINGS ARE VERY CLOSE TO THE STREET.

CALLE LOIZA SECTION:

THIS IS A SECTION CUT THRU CALLE LOIZA. IN THE MIDDLE OF CALLE LOIZA IS A PLANTER WITH SOME
PALMS DIVIDING THE TWO LANES. THIS IS AN OPTION THAT COULD WORK SINCE CALLE LOIZA IS AN OVER-
SIZE TWO LANE AVENUE. ENOUGH SPACE EXIST TO IMPLEMENT A PLANTER AND VEGETATION IN ORDER TO
BETTER DEFINE THE LANES. IN THIS CONCEPT THE SIDEWALKS WOULD BE ENLARGED IN ORDER TO IN-
CREASE UTILITY. IF THE SIDEWALKS ARE ENLARGED STREET VENDORS COULD SET UP ON THE STREET TO
SELL ICE CREAM AND PRODUCE. RESTAURANTS COULD ALSO USE THE SPACE FOR OUTSIDE SEATING.

[mASTER PL CONCEPT TWC

IN THIS CONCEPT I TURNED CALLE LOIZA INTO A PEDESTRIAN ONLY STREET. CALLE LOIZA WILL BE CLOSED
OFFINTO TWO SECTIONS AND CROSSED BY THE BOULEVARDS THAT ARE USED TO CHANNEL TRAFFIC NORTH
AND SOUTH TO KEEP THEM OFF THE RESIDENTIAL STREETS. GREEN OPEN SPACE WOULD BE IMPLEMENTED
WHERE CALLE LOIZA INTERSECTS WITH THE BOULEVARDS. AT THAT SAME SPOT BUS STOPS WILL BE IMPLE-
MENTED IN ORDER TO CREATE THE DYNAMICS FOR A PEDESTRIAN HUB. THREE PARKING GARAGES WILL
ALSO BE PLACED WHERE THE BOULEVARDS AND CALLE LOIZA INTERSECT, WHICH IS ALSO NEXT TO THE
OPEN SPACE. CALLE LOIZA WILL BE VEGETATED IN ORDER TO PROVIDE A NICE EXPERIENCE FOR PEDESTRI-
ANS AND FOR AESTHETIC REASONS. THE OVERALL CHARACTER OF THE STREET WOULD BE A PROGRESSIONS
OF ELEMENTS THAT WOULD PROVIDE FUNCTIONS FOR PEDESTRIANS. FOE EXAMPLE, SOME ELEMENTS THAT
CAN BE IMPLEMENTED ARE SEATING, FOUNTAINS, AND LIGHTING. AT THE NODES WHERE CALLE LOIZA IN-
TERSECTS WITH THE BOULEVARDS IDENTITY FEATURES WILL BE ADDED IN ORDER TO CREATE A SENSE OF
ARRIVAL AND EXIT. THE STREET DIRECTLY NORTH OF CALLE LOIZA (MCLEARY STREET) WILL BE EXPANDED
INTO A BOULEVARD TO CATCH ALL THE TRAFFIC THAT NORMALLY WAS ROUTED THRU CALLE LOIZA.

CONCEPT CALLE LOIZA SECTION:

THIS IS A SECTION CUT THRU CALLE LOIZA SHOWING THE PEDESTRIAN CHARACTER OF THE STREET. IN THIS
SECTION YOU CAN SEE STORE FRONTS PROVIDED FOR ACTIVITIES THAT RELATE TO EACH STORE AND IN
THE MIDDLE OF THE PEDESTRIAN CORRIDOR VEGETATION, SEATING, AND OTHER ELEMENTS ARE IMPLE-
MENTED TO IMPROVE THE PEDESTRIAN EXPERIENCE.

THIS DETAIL OF CALLE LOIZA IS TO SHOW THE TDEA OF
IMPLEMENTING A RAMBLA IN ALL OF CALLE LCi-L. 3 Pr 1bLA
IS A TREE LINED PEDESTRIAN MALL. A RAMBLAirl CALLE LOIA
WOULD IMPROVE AND ENCOURAGE PEDESTRIAN
CIRCULATION AND ACTIVITIES. A RAMBLA WOULD ALSO
CONTROL THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC. ALSO BY IMPLEMENTING
BOULDERS ALONG THE SIDEWALKS PARKING COULD
BE LIMITED TO THE NEW PARKING GARAGES.

RAMBLA PLAN:


IN THE ZOOM IN TO THE MASTER
PLAN YOU CAN SEE AND BETTER
UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF
IMPLEMENTING A RAMBLA. THE
PEDESTIRAN MALL WILL PROVIDE
BETTER PEDESTRIAN CIRCU
LATION, A PLACE FOR STREET
VENDORS, AND RESTRICT TRAF
SFIC CIRCULATION. A RAMBLA
WOULD IMPROVE AND MAKE
CALLE LOIZA A PLACE FOR PEDES
TRIANS BY PROVIDING SEATING
OPPORTUNITIES AND ALLOWING
VENDORS TO SELL GOODS IN THE
A NEW OUTDOOR SPACE. SOME OF
NORTH THE RAMBLA WILL BE VEGETATED
BY PALMS TO SHELTER PEOPLE
FROM THE HOT ZONE AND IN OTHER PARTS IT WILL OPEN UP. IN THIS PLAN YOU CAN ALL SEE THAT ALTHOUGH
THE RAMBLA ITSELF ACTS LIKE A SIDEWALK STORE FRONT SIDEWALKS WHERE ALSO IMPLEMENTED SO THAT
PEOPLE CAN CIRCULATE FROM STORE TO STORE.


RAMBLA SECTION:

IN THE SECTION IT IS EASIER TO
SEE AND GET A FEEL OF THE
RAMBLA AT A MORE HUMAN SCALE.
THE SIDEWALKS ARE SIX FEET
WIDE AND THE RAMBLA IS TWENTY
FEET WIDE. THE RAMBLA SERVES
TO SEPARATE TRAFFIC AND THE
LIGHT FIXTURES AND BOULDERS
PREVENT ON STREET PARKING.

MOST OF CALLE LOIZA WILL HAVE THE RAMBLA IN THE
MIDDLE, BUT IN THE ENTRY/EXIT THERE WILL BE A
PLANTER LINED WITH PALMS AND OTHER GRP C-:':, .'ERP
VEGETATION. THE PLANTER AND THE PALMS WILL ACT :
AS A TRANSITION SPACE WHERE YOU CAN CHOOSE TO .
STAY IN THE RAMBLA OR EXIT THE AREA. IN SOME
PARTS YOU CAN ALSO ACCESS SOME OF THE
THE LANDMARKS LOCATED AT THE NODES.

THIS PLAN SHOWS HOW THE RAMBLA WILL BEGIN, END, AND TRANSITION. THE RAMBLA ENDS AT NODES AND
TRANSITIONS INTO THIS ESPLANADE OF PALMS TO SIGNIFY A CHANGE OF SPACE. ALTHOUGH THE RAMBLA DOES
NOT CONTINUE THE PEDESTRIAN SIDEWALKS DO IN ORDER TO PROVIDE ACCESS FROM THE NODE AND BOULE-
VARDS FOR PEDESTRIANS.

THE SECTION HIGHLIGHTS THE
TRANSITION SPACE DYNAMICS. THE
STORES AT THESE POINTS STILL
HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE

THE RAMBLA DOES NOT REACH

BUILDING FACADE SECTION:
THE BUILDINGS FACADES IN LA CALLE LOIZA CAN EVOLVE INTO SPANISH STYLE BUILDINGS. THE DYNAMICS OF
THE BUILDINGS CAN BE FOR COMMERCIAL USE IN THE BOTTOM, WHILE THE TOP FLOORS CAN BECOME RESI-
DENCES OR UTILIZED FOR OTHER COMMERCIAL USE. THE BUILDINGS CAN RANGE FROM TWO TO THREE STORIES
SO THAT THERE IS A SENSE OF UNITY BETWEEN ALL THE BUILDINGS ALONG THE STREET.

BOULEVARD SECTION:


BOULEVARD PLAN:

THE BOULEVARD WILL BE LINED
WITH TREES. BOULDERS WILL BE
USED TO PREVENT PARKING ON THE
SIDEWALKS. ALL THE BOULEVARDS
WILL INTERSECT AT NODES. BY IN-
TERSECTING AT THE NODES THE
BOULEVARDS WILL AGGREGATE
PLUG AND PLAY SITES. THE NODES
WILL SERVE TO ACHIEVE A SENSE
OF ARRIVAL AND EXIT INTO CALLE
LOIZA.


THIS SECTION SHOWS THE CHARACTER THAT THE BOULEVARDS WILL HAVE. THE CHARACTER OF THE BOULER-
VARDS DIRECTLY CONTRASTS WITH THAT OF CALLE LOIZA.
