The firm provided planning and design services to the City of Pittsburg for the Gateway Project, a mixed-use development located at the entrance to Old Downtown Pittsburg. As the gateway to the newly rejuvenated Old Town area, which the firm also designed, the project serves as precedence for future redevelopment in downtown Pittsburg.
The firm was responsible for the design of pavements, accessible ramps and facilities, parking and street design, accessible parking, street lighting, site furnishings (benches, railings, accent paving, trash and recycling containers, bike racks, etc.), planting and irrigation. The Gateway Project sets the standard for downtown area redevelopment as one of the first to utilize the guidelines provided for in the downtown master plan.
The firm worked with the City and project developer to create the style and feel that the downtown merchants and residents desired through careful selection of paving materials, furnishings, landscape plants, ammenities and color palettes.
