X SHOPS ON LAKE AVENUE

The circa-1945 Welton Beckett-designed Macy’s Building anchors the Shops on Lake Avenue project. Pedestrian revitalization of the boulevard is a primary focus of the design strategy led by MDA Johnson Favaro for Starwood Wasserman. New building components create an urban edge where once was an unusable 30 foot ivy-covered slope. EPTDESIGN created a network of courts and terraces planted to activate the street and complement the historic California tropical theme including boxing and re-use of a substantial quantity of plants from the original gardens.
