Plaza Design Preserves Piece of Railway History
Stanley Consultants was hired by the City of Portales, New Mexico to help restore and historically preserve the Portales Depot for future generations. The Portales Depot is a significant piece of railway history within New Mexico. The project included performing a study and developing a strategy to register the depot at a state and federal level as well as developing a destination plaza within the city to celebrate the history of the depot. The plaza design itself features a stage area, shade structures, gathering spaces and native xeriscape landscape.
