Westfield UTC Mall, Town Square


Client: Westfield Corporation, LLC

Westfield UTC is located at the heart of University City. When completed, this landmark project will be the "town square" of the Town Center. The project is designed to accommodate events and functions of varying sizes and capacities within a central space, creating a gathering space for the community. A main corridor is defined with maintenance and durability in mind. This corridor, which is tied into the hardscape of other areas, will be easily accessible for future upgrades to the utilities. Project scope includes native and drought tolerant landscape, seating and lounge areas, a fountain feature, and sculptural pieces. The design of these features are integrated with the mall kiosk locations, encouraging shoppers to appreciate the naturalized exterior spaces as part of the retail experience. AHBE is guiding the owner through the design to ensure that the goals of the owner and the shoppers are both met.
