We discussed the landscape design (partially underway) around Armstrong Hall. Specific recommendations given to the landscape design company (NES) are in the Block 1 minutes.
We reviewed plans for the exterior of the building, especially the aesthetic connection to the adjacent building that will be integrated into the Center, and the aesthetic connect to the college and the historic North End neighborhood. For more information see the Block 2 minutes.
We reviewed plans to add a drop off point/drive through passage on the east side of Shove Chapel, and discussed that future landscape plans should reflect the uniqueness of the building. For more information see the Block 2 minutes.
West Cutler Quad Landscaping
We discussed ideas for landscaping around the new El Pomar building. We also viewed preliminary plans for changing the landscaping the area between Cutler Hall and the new El Pomar building in order to provide transition to the north entrance of El Pomar and resolve service and fire department access issues. For more information see the Block 2 minutes.
New Parking Lot (former Conoco site)
We reviewed the plans for the transformation of the former Conoco station site into a parking lot and the concrete (CMU) wall that will separate the parking lot from the work area behind the 3D Arts building. For more information see the Block 2 minutes.
