Design Workshop led the master planning and landscape architecture design for Hardy Yards, a 43-acre brownfield on a former rail yard. Located immediately north of downtown Houston, the redevelopment offers an opportunity to create a vibrant urban district that is an extension of the adjacent historic neighborhood. Taking advantage of the unparalleled skyline views and anchored by a new “complete street” network that will directly to the nearby multi-modal transit station, the development is centered on a community park, office, retail and residential uses. The site’s industrial heritage is celebrated in the detailed design for lighting, seating, paving and planting.
