Park at CityCenter Opens to Spring Activity
April 23, 2014 - The newly opened Park at CityCenter, designed by Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, is launching its robust public activation program with exercise classes on Tuesday evenings. Providing park space that encourages community-minded activities is one of the many ways that Gustafson Guthrie Nichol’s design reconnects a former mega-block back into the city’s urban structure.
Designed to feel comfortable and welcoming at all times, the Park at CityCenter embraces the mixed-use, street-oriented, retail environment of CityCenterDC. Two fountains frame the experience of entering the park with the site and sound of moving water. “The fountains’ undulating stone surfaces can be enjoyed year-round – even when the water is turned off. The sculpted, textured stonework accentuates the water's flow and creates beautiful shadow patterns that change throughout the day," said Rodrigo Abela, design principal.
“The Park at CityCenter has already shown that it was well-conceived to host community events, and we look forward to utilizing it for further programming throughout the year as an amenity to the Project and the entire Downtown community,” said Howard Riker, Hines Managing Director.
