PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Large existing Live Oak Trees were preserved during the tower construction and provided the framework for the design of a plaza and park-like setting. Native ferns create a lush blanket of plants in the shade of the 100+ year old Live Oak Trees. Benches set in crushed limestone paths are used daily by office workers for eating lunch. The modular pavers create a driveway and drop off location for the tower that's integrated with the parking garage and garden areas.
