Los Soleras Master Plan

Location: Santa Fe, NM

Completed: 2009

MRWM provided landscape master planning for a 550 acre development on the southern edge of Santa Fe. The project includes plans for a new RailRunner stop and associated transit-oriented,mixed use development. Planning for the parks and open space areas is based on the chance to rehabilitate slopes and enhance wildlife habitat while creating valuable recreational opportunities. Streetscapes are designed to harvest rainwater for landscape plantings and provide pedestrian-scale amenities, encouraging alternative modes of transportation. Similar to other large-scale development projects MRWM has worked on, including the Journal Center in Albuquerque, streetscape landscaping will occur in a way that allows for future development within the site to fit into the existing (and mature) landscape.
