    The Olive Street Exit was replanned, and in doing so identifies this sub-community of St. Louis through the use of visuals such as pedestrian spaces, greenery, and refinished masonry on the overpass itself. The approach to the Butler Community through Highway 71 and 52 could be re-vitalized to provide visitors a sense of where

    they are and the community they are entering into.

    STREETSCAPE AND COMMUNITY IDENTIFIERS

    East-29th Avenue town center revitalized city square in Denver CO, consisting of mixed use buildings from office, residen-tial, restaraunts and apart-ments. Through a re-designed open space and architectural ele-ments such as updated facades, pedestrian buffer zone to seper-ate vehicular traffic as well as vegetaion, allow the transfor-mation of the old space into a entry between downtown Denver and its surrounding suburb communities. In result this transformation has allowed a seperate identity to be formed. As, 29th Avenue, Town Center is

    its own distinct place.

    SIGNS AND IDENTIFIERSShort North : Arts District has a historic presence about the neigborhood as the arches were designed in 1888 and was re-vitalized in 2000.Columbus, Ohio set out to make a statement by construct-ing a series of arches throughout down-town not only to light the streets but to dazzle the visitors. Today, there are 17 high-tech arches spanning High Street, which are the architectural signature of

    the Short North.

    The arches now provide a mile-long rainbow that has become the hallmark

    of the district
