South Carlyle Plaza Development Wins Prestigous Award   

The South Carlyle Plaza development was recently awarded the Traveling Award for Analysis and Planning by the American Society of Landscape Architects, Potomac Chapter.  The award recognizes the project's ambitious program of interwoven public parkland, mixed-use development and municipal services. The project harnesses landscape strategies to cap a contaminated site and transform an elevated parking deck into a vibrant public space that folds down to engage the civic realm through an arrangement of ramps, stairs, stormwater filtration components, and overlooks.

  

This uncommon combination of program components was triggered by the simultaneous development of plans for a new mixed-use community on the northern half of the site and the expansion of the existing Alexandria ReNew municipal wastewater treatment plant onto the southern half of the site. The resulting plan creates an expansive park located over wastewater treatment tanks and an above-grade parking garage creating public space that establishes vital connections in a local network of parkland and trails.
