At Gill’s, we spend our days designing private gardens, courtyards, backyards – places for families to gather, have fun, relax and retreat. We’re so happy to see our downtown Corpus Christi doing the same for our public spaces!
We were especially pleased to see our “Queen of the Sea” fountain restored at the intersection of Lower Broadway and Peoples streets. It was originally designed by internationally renowned sculptor Pompeo Coppini over 100 years ago. Jordan Michael of the Downtown Management District is quoted saying in our Corpus Christi Caller Times “It’s reflective of the upswing of revitalization that has happened downtown, so we’re excited to have it back online.”
As many have said, the downtown district of a city is the heart of the city. Often it is a mixture of the old and new, with buildings and signage of the past mixed with new merchants, fresh paint and current art.
We’re so happy to see that happening with our downtown at a slow, intentional and sustainable rate. Thank you to the Downtown Management District, the City of Corpus Christi, and local business for bringing places and reasons to gather downtown to have fun, relax and retreat!
