Landscape architects Kornrandolph designed the surrounding Plaza and Paseo to reflect Pasadena’s historic parkways, gardens and plazas, with a nod to the natural landscape of the Arroyo Seco and the San Gabriel mountains that tower in the background. Lush landscaping with canopy trees, bamboo groves and flowering vines interplay with water features and reflecting pools to provide a sense of calm in an otherwise bustling city center. These common areas reach beyond block boundaries to connect the city’s network of pedestrian greenways.
