Victoria Row is one of the best gems in the City of Charlottetown. Not only is the area full of restaurants, cafes and galleries but the street is lined of old historic stone buildings. The block has been destroyed twice before by fire, in 1866 and again in 1884. What stands today are some of the most beautiful buildings in the City. In 1997 CADC, the City of Charlottetown and the local merchants partnered to transform Richmond Street, between Queen and Great George Street, into a pedestrian row. Closed to vehicle traffic in the summer months the street features brick pavers, mature trees, historic lighting, a bandstand, a fountain, an archway entrance and many outdoor restaurant patios. This area of Charlottetown is a must stop location for all visitors to the province and is enjoyed by locals as well. CADC prepared the design for the project and managed the construction process. The development cost $250,000 to complete and is one of the most dramatic transformations in Charlottetown.
