Paso del Norte Academy was in need of additional parking, lighting, site furnishings, landscaping and irrigation improvements around one of their El Paso, Texas campuses. The school contracted Sites Southwest to give site analysis and design options.
Aldea, El Paso is a 250 Master Planned New Urbanist Community in the city’s northwest sector. It’s located near the dramatic backdrop of the Franklin Mountains and beautiful Chihuahuan Desert. Sites Southwest, working with the owners and Moule & Polyzoides Urbanists, developed a plan for the residential and commercial center in a community well attuned to the desert environment.
Designing a master landscaping plan for this 20-acre shopping center at I-40 and San Mateo Boulevard in Albuquerque, New Mexico was no easy task. The process entailed addressing all of the practices and requirements of Albuquerque’s Development Review Board, meeting the immediate needs of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Arroyo Flood Control Authority and observing New Mexico Department of Transportation traffic regulations.
