CGA’s Landscape Architecture & Design department along with the Highway Design, Civil & Traffic Engineering, and Electrical Engineering department provided a pedestrian-scaled, streetscape promenade design for a three block section of North 35th Avenue that runs alongside Memorial Regional Hospital and the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital campus in Hollywood. The project consist of the installation of custom bus shelters, decorative street lighting, and a uniquely designed brick paver walkway as well as other pedestrian friendly features. The enhanced landscape design along the roadway will include a new round-a-bout and brick paver intersections, pedestrian crossings, expanded outdoor seating areas, and new Royal Palms and landscaping on both sides. In addition, two more intersections will have brick paver treatments, including the one at Johnson Street. An overhead pedestrian bridge is also included in the design to link the pedestrians from the West side of the campus to the East side of 35th Ave. The hospital staff also envisioned colorful banners projecting from the street lighting announcing the medical complex and lining both sides of the street which have been incorporated into the design concepts. The campus master plan includes the extension of these streetscape designs to the overall site pending available funding.
