The vision for Symphony Park is to create a vertical urban village made up of residential, retail and office uses, with a series of connections between the site and the city.
LEED-ND Gold Stage 2
Honor Award for Planning and Urban Design, Colorado Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects,
Newland Communities contracted with RNL and Design Workshop to develop a LEED-ND Gold master plan for a vacant 61-acre parcel of remediated Union Pacific Railroad land immediately adjoining downtown. Symphony Park is the largest piece of assembled, undeveloped land in downtown Las Vegas. The vision for this property is to create a vertical urban village, made up of residential, retail and office uses, which is planned to be centrally located on the site between a medical campus and a performing arts complex with a series of connections between the site and the city.
A shaded grid of streets connects view corridors and pedestrian bridges to downtown Las Vegas. A central “promenade” is the feature focus of activity, and a series of east-west “street parks” enliven the urban village. The Team is responsible for master planning, economic analysis, market strategy, transportation and infrastructure planning services. The project’s intent is to establish a model of sustainable urban development in the arid west that is the “jewel of the desert.”
