Qualities of a Great Street


Project for Public Spaces (PPS) has identified ten qualities that
contribute to the success of great streets. Streets account for as much
as a third of the land in a city, and historically, they served as
public spaces for social and economic exchanges. Great streets
incorporate the elements described in the list below.

  • Attractions & Destinations
  • Identity & Image
  • Active Edge Uses
  • Amenities
  • Management
  • Seasonal Strategies
  • Diverse User Groups
  • Traffic, Transit & the Pedestrian
  • Blending of Uses and Modes
  • Protects Neighborhoods

Each quality is described in detail at the
resource link below. PPS offers many more documents on great streets —
and great places — on its website at www.pps.org/.
