Northern Kentucky University South Central Plaza
Highland Heights, Kentucky
The Kleingers Group provided landscape architecture, site civil engineering, and surveying services for the new South Central Plaza on the Northern Kentucky University campus. The plaza is centrally located, surrounded by the Student Union, Nunn Hall, Founders Hall, and University Center. By removing various unnecessary steps, ramps, and handrails, the space was designed to be more open and pedestrian friendly. The plaza also provides a more park-like atmosphere with the elimination of nearly half of the existing pervious concrete pavement.
