Landscape Architecture Overview:

The Molengracht, a re-created Dutch urban canal, has brought new life and energy to this half–block site, and serves as the centerpiece of a $10 million, mixed-use development project. As landscape architect, RDG designed the canal, plazas, and public environment to compliment the unique new buildings built in the “Dutch revival” fashion, thus creating a signature development for this community. The mixed-use development incorporates a hotel, office and commercial development, senior housing, and a parking garage. RDG also completed the urban renewal plan and assisted the City in selecting the right developer. RDG previously completed the City’s attractive downtown streetscape program.
