Landmark Design headed a multi-disciplinary team in the development of the 500 West Park Block in Salt Lake City’s Gateway District. Previously, Landmark Design headed a multi-disciplinary team in the development of the Gateway District Land Use and Development Plan, which set the urban design and land use planning vision for the area. The project was was completed in two, two-block phases. The design includes large and small public gathering spaces, walkways and gardens, open lawn gathering areas, sculpture, an innovative children’s play area, a water feature, visual and literary art, a water conservation demonstration garden that depicts Utah landscapes from the mountains to the deserts, and many unique sculptural features incorporated into the overall design. It is the centerpiece of the Gateway District. Landmark Design was responsible for planning, design, construction documents, and construction administration services for both phases of development.
