John Rice Hanging Garden

Curtis & Annie Spoerlein, owners of MADE and residents at the Urban Arts Lofts, have transformed an underutilized alleyway located in the heart of Downtown into the John Rice Way Hanging Garden. The goal of this project is to create an attractive and inviting outdoor lounge for residents and visitors to enjoy during downtown shopping and dining. This unique design is a custom exterior that brings with it a sense of nature. The design reflects the City’s arts initiative using colors, textures, light, creativity and natural building materials.

JRW Hanging Garden location: 634 Lake Avenue
