A contemporary coastal retail experience, 2nd and PCH sets the standard for an immersive shopping experience where Landscape and Placemaking set the mood, encourage gathering and create dramatic entertainment opportunities. The landscape design focus was to provide strong pedestrian connectivity, interweave an extensive art program, introduce moments of discovery, and select plant material that was mature and seasonally diverse. As part of the sustainability of project, the landscape design was articulated and sensitive to water conservancy and incorporated a broad palette of low water use plant materials, including succulent, grasses, Native Trees and a variety of ornamental shrubs suitable to the coastal environment.
