This new mixed-use development features a complex program that includes a hotel, rental space for other companies, eateries, service apartments, and retail facilities. SWA’s design challenge was to create a common space that can be enjoyed by the disparate users on-site at any given time. A common plaza includes multiple restaurants on a terraced platform that attract a lively lunch and after-hours crowd. Palm bosques offer shade and buffer the hotel’s entry area from the busy street beyond. The plaza also boasts several sculptures, as well as water features that reflect the site’s building geometry.
