The Crossing Business Center

Location: Summerlin, Nevada

This project is a focal element within the Las Vegas Master Planned Community, Summerlin Town Center. The Business Center (including retail and office space) was designed with the visualization of a Southwest high technology image. The Howard Hughes Corporation was working to create a dramatic image and a central hub for this community. The scope of our landscape architectural services included conceptual design and working drawings for vehicular and pedestrian spaces, plaza areas, and a central southwest garden area, including a water element. Our design services addressed hardscape, walls, stairs, handrails, coordination of grading and drainage, lighting coordination, drive design, planting, irrigation, and signage coordination. The overall landscape design included a careful evaluation of Hydrozones and plant communities. Plant materials were used to enhance the architectural image at key focal areas, while a desert garden landscape theme was used in other areas.
