legacy central – houston, texas

An upscale residential tower and adjoining office tower in Houston’s Upper Kirby district, Arrive Upper Kirby accommodates a luxurious urban lifestyle — complete with a stunning amenity deck uniting the two towers. The sixth-floor amenity deck provides separate areas for residents and office patrons — with a sculptural reflecting pond on the office side and resort-style pool for residents — with material richness and striking skyline vistas serving as the unifying thread. Situated to capitalize on the most desirable sun angles, the pool is ideal for restorative sunbathing and includes a sun shelf with semi-submerged leisure chairs flanking a hand-picked olive tree from California that appears like it’s growing out of the water. An outdoor kitchen, community lawn, dog run and other gathering areas complete the experience.

granite park – plano, texas

Granite Park has evolved from one of the area’s most successful office parks into a mixed-use destination with 18-hour vibrancy. TBG has been working at Granite Park for more than 15 years, beginning in 2004 by helping to elevate the existing corporate campus to a Class A property and more walkable, attractive environment. As the campus grew, TBG continued to provide landscape architecture services associated with new office towers, a large hotel and, most recently, with the Boardwalk, a waterfront pedestrian promenade located between six restaurants and a lake. The Boardwalk hugs the lakefront, jutting out over the water at various points, and features varieties of seating, fountains, children’s play areas, string lights and plantings.

the shops at park lane – dallas, texas

Converting a surface parking lot into a multifaceted central plaza gave new life to a prominent mixed-use destination that had long been considered soulless. The plaza gave daily patrons — shoppers, students, office workers, residents and diners — a reason to linger outside and relax. Its combination of rich materials, elegant details and comfortable surroundings revitalized the destination. Intimate moments are ideal along the black granite water walls, the multipurpose green is well-situated for movies, yoga and informal lounging, and the internal street’s curb-less condition accommodates increased public space for large gatherings. A promenade with spray jets and spacious walkways further enhances the pedestrian experience. The project was one of 13 landscape projects selected for the Landscape Architecture Foundation’s 2017 Case Study Investigation (CSI) program, which documents the benefits of exemplary landscape projects.
