Have you seen the 14 new planters out on W 103rd Street? They signal the start of the Department of Transportation’s Street Improvement Project (SIP). Once the project is complete, there will be 30+ planters across the 3 blocks of our Open Street.

Planter power is the positive impact of our beautiful new greenery on W 103rd Street. Here are some of the benefits to our neighborhood:
We look forward to having all 30+ planters on the block once the SIP is completed by summer’s end, 2023. We hope you are already experiencing a safer, more beautiful, and more inclusive street when on W 103rd.
