North I-25 Corporate Center

Location: Albuquerque, NM

Completed: 2010

With Reid and Associates and FBT Architects

MRWM completed a full landscape master plan and detailed landscape design guidelines as part of a Site Plan for Subdivision application for a 65 acre office and retail park located on the northwestern side of I-25 in Albuquerque.

The project includes plans for streetscapes, parking lots, office and retail landscapes, a bike trail, and a central commons park/plaza.

Inverted crowns, or dry stream beds, are key elements of the landscape design, intended to harvest rainwater for landscape plantings while providing an aesthetic amenity. Screening of parking lots, creating pedestrian-scale environments, and water conservation were all important considerations for the design.

MRWM also completed a more detailed plan for the first phase of development for submittal to the City of Albuquerque Environmental Planning Commission.
