Stevens Creek Promenade

Located in San Jose, this 10-acre project is part of Fortbay’s visionary Urban Village Mixed-Use Signature Project as defined in San Jose’s Envision 2040 General Plan and the recently adopted Stevens Creek Urban Village Plan. The project is a mixed-use transit-oriented development that includes approximately 233,000 SF of Class A office/R&D space, 10,000 SF of retail, and approximately 110.5 units per acre housing while also addressing the requirements and objectives of a Mixed-Use Signature Project. The site is a significant milestone for Silicon Valley because it will provide additional jobs, both market rate and affordable housing, shopping, and interactive open public spaces while being integrated into the City of San Jose’s vision for multi-modal transportation infrastructure in the corridor that will improve the movement of people and vehicles.
In addition to the housing, job opportunities, and transportation benefits, the project will also be designed to the latest energy and water efficiency standards while implementing drought-tolerant landscape features throughout the site.

Future Flea Market Park

This multi-purposed 3.5-acre park will be a central gathering landmark for the Market Park neighborhood. Together with nearby small parks and trails, the future Flea Market Park is part of a significant open space network for a planned 2,800 residential units, offices and retail facilities.
For the Future Flea Market Park, HMH designed a large, central, multi-use lawn area bordered by a variety of amenities: tot lot, playground, BBQ and dining areas, and a parkour course. The lawn typography is stepped to create broad amphitheater-like seating. A native planting area contains both a hummingbird garden and a Zen-inspired mediation garden. HMH has infused the park with local history through sculptures, artifacts and the design of a main plaza. Inspired by San Jose’s once-dominant agricultural orchards, HMH utilizes a grid of trees on the park’s plaza, which frame tables, seating, lawn sports courts and barbeques. HMH landscape designers incorporated community input into the park design.

Willow Glen Spur Trail at Falcon Court

Conforming to the Monroe Staging Area trail segment, the Reach 4 expansion provides safe off-street passage for trail users from the staging area to the Cabrillo Avenue on-street trail segment.  The project faced several site specific challenges.  Providing access for maintenance vehicles, appropriate drainage, planting, irrigation, trail, traffic barriers and curb all within a 14’ section was one of the largest challenges to overcome.  The 14’ section occurs at a critical point of the trail between San Tomas Expressway and residential property lines.  Ultimately, the trail width was reduced at the critical point to accommodate the necessary design elements in the safest, most functional and aesthetically pleasing way possible.
Wayfinding elements including a trailhead sign and decorative paving mark the trail access point from Cabrillo Avenue. A grassy swale provides both drainage and lushness to the landscape strip while tall Tristania trees provide visual screening to the neighboring residences.

Parque de los Pobladores

HMH Civil Engineering and Landscape Architecture staff worked with Steinberg Architects to prepare a construction plan set, including landscape plans, for the City’s construction permit approval for a redesigned and slightly expanded public park.  As part of the City’s “Pavement to Plazas Program,” this area provides a place to sit, relax, and meet others in a dynamic downtown location adjacent to art galleries, restaurants and other venues.   The site is situated on 0.2 acre parcel with public street boundaries of South First Street, William Street, South Market Street, and Reed Street in the downtown area called SoFa (South of First Area).
Newly constructed park improvements included landscape improvements as well as other features to complement the existing granite park signage and public art structures.  A part of this improvement project was the closure of a small portion of South First Street adjacent to the site to expand the park area.  Polished granite benches for seating, on-site lighting upgrades, and new walking surfaces contributed to the pleasant experience of visiting this park and viewing the public art commemorating the founding settlers of the Pueblo San Jose de Guadalupe.
Colorful groundcover, native plantings and a colonade of trees were planted to add color and visual aesthetic to this outdoor place.  Drought tolerant plantings along with and stormwater control improvements make this a project that is efficient in water management and also an interesting destination for downtown residents and visitors.

Coyote Creek Trail

The Coyote Creek Trail borders the Market Park master planned transit community and is part of a significant open space network for the site’s planned 2,800 residential units, offices and retail facilities. Working with KB Homes, San Jose Department of Public Works, and The City’s Recreation and Neighborhood Services, HMH designed and created construction documents for an extension of the trail north of Berryessa Road.
Consistent with The City’s Coyote Creek Trail Master Plan, this quarter-mile link will serve as an access point to more than 600 residences when the north side of Berryessa Road  (formerly Flea Market parking area) is fully developed. A gateway monument and specialized pavement identifies the entry to this portion of the multi-use trail.
HMH designed the extension along with a regional stormwater retention basin and a biotreatment basin, the first application of large stormwater treatment in the San Jose Area. The treatment area borders the west portion of the trail, which, along with the creek banks, creates a rich nature setting for walkers and bicyclists. Canopy trees and an access road into the sites north of Berryessa Road border the east portion of the trail. HMH also coordinated riparian migration, or preservation of the creek vegetation zone, with H.T. Harvey & Associates.

Future Flea Market Park

Adjacent to the Coyote Creek Trail which borders the Market Park neighborhood, the future Flea Market Park is part of a significant open space network for a planned 2,800 residential units, offices and retail facilities.
For the 3.5-acre future Flea Market Park, HMH designed with an emphasis on recreation. The park centers on a multipurpose central turf area for junior sports and also includes a tennis court, a training circuit, and a bocce court. HMH utilizes an orchard meadow motif on the paved memorial plaza, which will hold seating and a shade structure. An entrance to Coyote Trail is prominently featured. And in response to community input, the future Flea Market Park features a large dog park that offers separate areas for small and large dogs along with canine amenities.
The design includes flood control infrastructure for the protection of the local neighborhood. HMH has accommodated a water retention area that serves to capture and control the disbursement of excess water to Coyote Creek, should a flood event occur.

Blossom Hill Park Trail Renovation

HMH worked with the Town of Los Gatos to replace pavement and increase accessibility along a 1/3 mile long trail through the heart of Blossom Hill Park. The work was performed in conjunction with a parallel pathway lighting project to increase the safety and use of the trail.
Completed on an accelerated schedule, HMH met early with Town’s engineers to walk the site and visualize proposed improvements.  Though a multidisciplinary approach, HMH provided design services addressing compliance with the handicap accessibility and flooding concerns, while preserving existing trees and upgrading park amenities. With wider pathways meeting federal guidelines, the parks bathrooms, tennis courts and concession stand can now be accessed by the entire community.

Boulevard Park

Boulevard Park was planned around an existing Camphor tree and provides a quiet location from the urban life surrounding the site. The quiet private park oasis features a variety of outdoor amenities that include picnic tables, a children’s play area, a large swathe of lawn for relaxation or recreation, game tables, a rose garden with private seating areas, and a ring of tall palm trees. All features have been designed to be accessible to all users. The palm trees originally located on the Underwriter’s Laboratory site, were maintained off site and then relocated into the park for a dramatic instant impact.
