About this Tour Stop...

Designed by Brand +Allen, with RVBKJ Sprinkle Robey Architects. This was one of the first new developments on the river that took toheart the Paseo Del Rio study. Aligning the building with the street pattern, interesting "courtyard" spaces are created on the riverside with the intersection of the meandering river. Original "landscaping" plans called for the entire river level to be paved. The compromise was that there would be plantings in planter bed on the river level and Poled plants were allowed at street level. Take a look and see which you think are more successful. Because of this project the regulations were changed to mandate a certain percent of patio, would have to be landscape beds.
