Project: Grand Avenue at the USU Innovation Campus – North Logan, Utah

|||||||| |||||||| ||||||||

Landmark Design led the design of Grand Avenue, a high-profile boulevard for a USU research park located in North Logan, Utah. The project included a 100-foot wide street that extends through the campus for approximately 2000 feet. Landmark Design was responsible for designing the entire median and streetscape, and preparing construction documents for the first 1,300-foot segment.

Grand Avenue was developed in part to represent innovation using cutting-edge city-building, place-making and sustainability ideas. The high-profile roadway incorporates unique drainage features, a wide pedestrian median promenade, and special materials and site features to reduce the perception that the road is primarily a place for vehicles.

A 24-foot wide pedestrian promenade is located in the center of the street, incorporating a canal water-feature that conveys irrigation water through the site. The canal is punctuated by large blocks of stone and concrete, providing places for people to play, sit and gather. Other design features include unique lighting, lush plantings of trees and plants, stone and metal bollards at crossings and raised crosswalks.

In the course of developing the park concept, Landmark Design consulted with a steering committee composed of representatives of Innovation Campus, USU construction and maintenance staff, Logan City, the City of North Logan, roadway engineers and others. This group helped direct design efforts which resulted in a design that was understood and embraced.

The $2.3 million dollar first phase was completed in October 2005.
