New York

Plaza de las Americas project received a Diamond Award in the 2017 ACEC New York Engineering Excellence. The reconstruction of West 175th Street from Broadway to Wadsworth, transformed the plaza market into a beautiful multi-purpose open space for the community. Design work included site analysis, traffic engineering, topographic survey, geotechnical engineering and urban landscape architecture. Enhancements include trees, lighting, benches, a drinking fountain, public art and decorative permeable paving materials. Landscape architects were very detailed in choosing pavers creating a design that would match New York’s urban style and fast paced environment. Eco-Priora™ with the Senzo® and Series 3000® finishes were chosen in different colors creating an amenity space for the citizens and visitors of New York city.
