University Place Town Center: Market Square

University Place, WA

The City of University Place embarked on an ambitious development of a new Town Center as the heart of their community. Working closely with traffic engineers, city staff, planners, architects, and developers, HBB developed streetscape and open space analysis based on circulation patterns, district design guidelines, climate conditions. Based on final concept diagrams integrating the new City Hall, Library, and Police Station, HBB developed construction documents for concepts for Market Square, that main civic open space at University Place Town Center, as well as several adjacent streetscapes. HBB integrated infrastructure requirements to support the framework needed for outdoor dining, farmer’s markets, gas fire pit (timer activated), jet fountain feature, adjacent retail spaces, holiday events, and the need for a functional civic space.
