Glo Downtown to shop, dine & ride Impulse
Initially launched in Montréal, and created but Lateral Office and CS Design, the dynamic Impulse seesaw public art installation has visited Australia, London, Boston, and New York City — among other major stops — and will be arriving in Westfield during a particularly slow time for retailers and restaurants.
Downtown Westfield is betting that people who come to ride the seesaws will stay for Glo Downtown self-directed Chocolate Tour Weekends, Pie in the Sky Pizza Challenge, dining specials & hot shopping deals – available only while the Impulse seesaw installation is open.
The costs of the Impulse seesaws are fully funded by grants and sponsorships, namely by Main Street New Jersey, Columbia Bank (www.ColumbiaBankOnline.com), and Wonder (www.wonder.com), a brand new home dining experience in Westfield where dishes from the country’s best restaurants are prepared right outside your home. Harmony Design Group, Landscape Architecture & Construction (www.hdglandscape.com), has been a valued partner sponsoring the setup of the Glo Downtown installation.
Impulse is owned and managed by Quartier des Spectacles Partnership.
