Boyd Plaza Renovation

City of Columbia

Completion Date

Est. Fall 2018

Project Budget


The Boyd Plaza, located in the heart of downtown and adjacent to the Columbia Museum of Art, will undergo a complete renovation to create a more open, urban-park-like amenity for the community.  Continuing the energy of the Main Street redevelopment, the renovated plaza will be pedestrian-friendly and include a grove of mature hardwood trees, seat walls defining new planted areas, and a new fountain base for the existing Keenan sculpture.  Two pavilion structures will also be incorporated to provide shaded areas for seating and events, as well as spill-out space for the Museum.  The existing sculptures throughout the plaza will be carefully relocated within the plaza to enhance the new design.
