The revitalization of downtown Far Rockaway is on the front page of Rockaway's newspaper, The Wave! Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a $91 million capital investment for the improvements to the downtown area. W is working on the reconstruction of six streets and two plazas that will benefit from the investment. The streetscapes and plazas will include planting new street trees, seating, paving, and other pedestrian level improvements. The streetscapes and plazas are a major part of the overall downtown renewal and we are looking forward to seeing it all happen!

W Architecture and Landscape Architecture is pleased to announce the completion of Regeneron’s campus landscape design. Located within the Hudson Valley, a main goal of the project was to capture the unique essence of the region and establish forward thinking ecological environments that promote a cohesiveness throughout the new BioMed Reality development. Rolling topographic berms traverse the site to function as screens for existing parking and operate as platforms to implement diverse plantings within the site that call to forest and meadow landscapes. Jogging and bike trails, along with rain gardens, sun decks and an oval lawn are just some of the features that make the design an area of outdoor engagement for the current and future employees of the company.

Congratulations to Baltimore and especially Spike Gjerde of Woodberry Kitchen, for being the 2nd best city for food as named by Zagat. We are proud of our part as landscape architect in bringing the Woodberry experience to the out of doors—it’s a special place!
