The Ives Group led by Joel Ives, AIA designed the landscaping as part of the Port Authority team to beautify and reconfigure the Holland Tunnel Rotary in New York. Our responsibilities included selecting the planting materials and designing pedestrian areas including paving, benches, and fences. We were also responsible for the design and details of the irrigation system. A presentation with plant materials and landscape architectural items was prepared for community meetings. Our staff worked closely with the Port Authority engineers to make this important portal to the city an outstanding design experience. We also were responsible for the preparation of cost estimates and specifications.
