Last week, the Grand Opening of St. Patrick’s Island was a success! W Architecture+ Landscape Architecture along with the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation worked to build a dynamic landscape that recognizes the nature, history, and cultural expression within the city of Calgary. St. Patrick’s Island is programed to be an active site, where restoration of hydrologic elements are integrated among recreational landscape features to establish an environment where people can connect and engage with “The Living River.”

Prudential Newark's new office tower is complete and now inhabited by more than 3,000 employees. W Architecture & Landscape Architecture designed a large roof garden terrace and plaza with a green wall for workers to enjoy. The tower, designed by KPF, is located on a prominent site that faces Broad Street and overlooks Military Park. The office building will strengthen Newark's downtown core with its state-of-the-art building and set a high standard for sustainable development in the area.

Here's Darian on a site visit to Columbus Towers, our project in Jersey City, New Jersey. The project includes three premium rental towers and a 144-room hotel. W is designing the streetscape and three rooftop terraces for the towers, designed by Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman and Associates. There is a New Jersey PATH train station integrated into one of the towers - an ideal location for commuters to other areas of New Jersey and New York. The streetscape and terrace landscape plans are designed to soften the urban site and provide outdoor oases for residents.

Check out the W team hanging out in Plaza 33! A terrific article on the plaza was just published by the Wall Street Journal. The article, "An Oasis in Midtown's Mayhem," heralds the plaza as a refuge from the crowds and grit that have historically surrounded Penn Station. The plaza is part of a neighborhood revitalization plan, which includes improving the pedestrian experience for the area. The project design was completed in only a few months, was opened on August 10th, and will remain open until October 11. If Plaza 33 remains successful, a permanent plaza may be developed for the location in the future.
