DETAILS:

Designed by Calvin, Giordano & Associates, Inc., the plaza is co-funded by the Delray Beach CRA ($275,000) and the City of Delray Beach through its Stormwater Utility Fund ($45,195.36). The design consists of landscaping features, pedestrian amenities, as well as, a colorful terrazzo and keystone pavers similar to the Libby Wesley Plaza across Atlantic Avenue. Green building elements such as pervious pavers and the native vegetation selection were incorporated into the plaza for aesthetic and drainage and water filtration purposes. The plaza was designed to fit seamlessly into the Atlantic Avenue corridor while still maintaining its unique civic identity. Its unique character may be seen through the four fire rescue motifs featured in the bronze emblems that will be integrated into the decorative pavers.

Construction is anticipated to commence in the next several weeks and is estimated to be completed in the fall of 2015.

Swinton Avenue, Delray Beach, FL 33444.
