The current Parsons Avenue Merchants Association monument is located on the east side of Parsons on the north side of the Children’s Hospital Parking garage just south of Livingston Avenue.
Due to Children’s plans to erect a new structure in the area, the monument will be removed and stored pending relocation to the west side of Parsons Avenue on property where the new Village Pointe building is located.
The Neighborhood Design Center has been tasked with creating a new design for the monument that re-uses some of the existing materials and is appropriate to the new site. A model of the site has been created and students will be creating samples to show what might be built. The Parsons Avenue Merchants Association will oversee the design selection with input.
It is anticipated that the new monument will be available in Spring 2015.
