Martin Luther King Commons Renovation | Northern Illinois University

Northern Illinois University’s MLK Commons is a centrally located, open, paved and landscaped pedestrian plaza that serves as a campus focal point for students. In 2008, the University sought Knight’s services to renovate the Commons, including replacing existing sidewalks and plaza paving, designing site grading and drainage, and reconfiguring lighting and site landscaping.
