While extreme arboreal care was taken during design and construction at the root zone of these specimen trees, excavations did unearth a former tunnel nearby for a long ago and forgotten pneumatic tube of a drive-in bank. Rather than demolish it SITE solutions was able to reposition the tunnel as a cistern for detention and reclaimed irrigation water.
Soft seating zones, the Loop Lounge, a reimagined car and bike valet area, completely new plaza flooring, a skating rink, custom pots/furnishings, an Uber stop and art and gardens were all developed to new brand standards for the project, while connectivity and streetscape design conforms to the over-arching vision of the Midtown Alliance.
