The Gallery at Westbury Plaza is Equity One’s first ground up retail project in the New York metropolitan area. Equity One’s approach was to develop an “upscale” retail strip center with covered pedestrian spaces. WDLA was asked to design a retail landscape that included stone and concrete sidewalks with designated “living rooms” for outdoor seating, planters and planting, recommended site lighting and perimeter and parking area lighting. As part of our services WDLA worked closely with E.W. Howell, the contractor, the retailers, and the owner’s representative on an array of pavement approaches to retain the quality of the initial design yet bring the hardscape in on budget.
