One Cherry Center Plaza
Water-wise plantings in office plaza provide a variety of color and texture for year-round enjoyment
The 11-story One Cherry Center building that was completed in 1986 needed major upgrades. Wenk Associates completed design through construction for a redesign of the outdated entry plaza on top of an existing structured parking deck. The outdoor plaza is a gathering and resting space for employees of the adjacent office building. The design creates an angular grass plane that increases usability of the plaza and gives it a clean, sculpted look. Plantings were selected to provide a variety of color, texture, and foliage for all four seasons. The plaza was completed with high finish materials, unique site detailing, a variety of seating options, and water-wise plantings to create an exciting new space.
