First Street Green / Los Altos, California
This project proposes replacing a surface parking lot with a free public plaza, adding a state-of-the-art office building that includes community space, and building a subterranean parking lot to increase available parking by 118%. The plaza has been designed to be flexible enough to host family gatherings, concerts, movie nights, farmer's markets, and art festivals. Project scope includes improvements to the adjacent alley landscape and hardscape. With the goal of promoting a vibrant downtown in Los Altos, this project has worked intensively with the local community to create a space that truly responds to neighbors' concerns, priorities, and aspirations.
