North I-25 Corporate Center
Location: Albuquerque, NM
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. 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 streambeds, 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.
