SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH - The Utah Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects has awarded a Merit Award to the West Valley Plaza in its 2013 Awards competition. In 2012 the project received a 2012 Award of Merit for Construction Excellence from the Associated General Contractors of Colorado.
The $1.5 million multimodal plaza and its distinctive performance canopy is a key component of a renewal project designed as a centerpiece for the downtown area of West Valley City, Utah. The plaza serves over 500 commuters per day that use the adjacent bus station and light rail stop. The multimodal plaza includes a performance canopy and stage with water feature used for public events including a farmers market. Additional plaza amenities include bench and turf seating areas and distinctive plaza landscape. Detailed attention was given to night lighting of both the canopy and the overall plaza.
