1313 119th St. was an empty lot that the City of Whiting decided to rehab into a public plaza area for the citizens to sit, relax and socialize.
This area has tables for individuals and families to use, the top is covered with shades for the sun and weather, and a mural will be coming soon to the back of the plaza wall!
The City of Whiting hopes that residents utilize this area well. This new plaza area will be a great space for people to grab food from a local restaurant and sit outside and eat, while you’re walking or shopping along 119th Street.
Residents and visitors can take a break and rest their feet, and once the mural is completed snap a photo of yourself and others. The mural is going to be a place for individuals to have a photo experience, representing Whiting and its history.
The mural will be completed by a local NWI artist by the name of Felix Maldonado. We have seen some of his other work and we are excited to be working with him on this project. You can check out some of his work at his website, FLEX Creative LLC. (felixmaldonado.com).
