The Kleingers Group provided landscape architecture and civil engineering services for this project which included the overall site planning and design for three five-story office buildings at 175,000 SF per structure on a 20-acre site. The design also included two parking decks, site utilities, grading, drainage, loading facilities, landscaping and plaza design.
The new facilities were constructed on a previously developed site, formerly a manufacturing facility. Special considerations were made due to the environmental nature and construction related issues. The parking decks were funded by Blue Ash TIF funds and were bid separate from the building packages, built a year apart.
Plantings were enriched at key focal points throughout the site signifying gateways and gathering spaces to create a cohesive design aesthetic. An outdoor plaza was strategically located next to an interior café to unite the indoor and outdoor spaces. Specialty concrete paving with an intricate jointing pattern was used to create a human scaled plaza. A variety of contemporary site furnishings were used, creating a flexible space which can be used for outdoor dining or work stations. Landscaping surrounds the plaza bringing warmth to the space while keeping unwanted distractions to a minimum.
