LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

Broadway Office Development

San Antonio, TX

 

Rialto is happy to be part of a transformative project on Broadway at Pearl Parkway, where two Class A office buildings are under construction. The project will employ LID features and capture 100,000 gallons of rain water.  Some of the rain water will be stored in tanks salvaged from the Pearl redevelopment. Captured and recycled water will be used for all irrigation, toilet flushing and cooling towers. Rialto’s scope includes design of all hardscape areas including the park area with open lawn under mature live oak trees.  The design team is also pursuing LEED certification for the building complex. The project is scheduled to open in 2020.

 

The Grove

Austin, TX

 

The Grove at Shoal Creek is a 75-acre, mixed-use infill development located just 4 miles north of downtown Austin. This urban community will provide a wide range of housing types as well as a vibrant retail district, Class A office, and over 20 acres of parks. Our work on Master Planning and entitlements complete, Rialto Studio is now focused on designing the landscapes and streetscapes for the residential neighborhoods and parks throughout The Grove. The Grove is currently under construction and the first phase will open in 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

 

St. Andrew's United Methodist Church

San Antonio, TX

 

St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church and School is located on a five acre site nestled in a north central San Antonio neighborhood community developed in the 1950’s.  The neighborhood has evolved over the years, but the church was slow to change.  Realizing this, Rialto Studio was asked to participate in a campus renovation, turning a rough master plan into a concept that could be executed.  We are currently participating in efforts to document phase one of the multiphase improvements.  Phase one includes the addition of community green space, renovating the interior courtyard and playground, improving vehicular and pedestrian site access and repairs to the existing parking.  Future phases will include the expansion of the sanctuary, new parking lot and drop-ff, additional improvements to existing parking, the development of additional community space.  St. Andrew’s is slated to break ground on the renovations in early 2019.

Legacy at Cibolo

Boerne, TX

 

Located Boerne, Texas; just north of San Antonio, this once small quiet community with its historic architecture and small town feel has become a popular destination for new residents wanting to escape the big city.  This brings with it a need for new, and sensitive development.  The 28 acre property features commercial sites, a historic estate being renovated for restaurant use, and a fifteen acre multifamily apartment complex which fronts onto Cibolo Creek.  The projects adjacency to the Cibolo Creek allowed this project a unique opportunity to showcase how stormwater can be managed to help negate negative impacts to the natural system.  The project has many low impact design elements such as bioretention features, native planting, efficient irrigation and Dark Sky compliant lighting.  Rialto has been involved from the projects inception by master planning of the site, development of the site entries and public open space, and development of individual sites, including the apartment complex. Construction of the public infrastructure began in mid 2018.
