As part of the second phase of the Assembly Row development, Copley Wolff Design Group provided landscape architectural design services for the public realm located between blocks seven and eight.
In addition to a new marketplace and restaurant with outdoor seating, the linear park offers public space for visitors to gather, play bocce ball, and relax. Copley Wolff Design Group’s scope of work includes plantings to provide seasonal interest; canopy trees offering shade; paving to add texture and height; a unique water feature to create variety in shape and water flow; and seat walls, lighting, and IPE decking. Large steel structures from the Ford Motor Plant that was once located on the site were incorporated into the design.
