Jeffrey Smith, LLA, LEED AP
PEA designed roads, streetscape and two public gathering spaces along Michigan Avenue, Schaefer Road, and Osborne Street in the City of Dearborn. The project incorporated multiple sustainable design features into the plan for a 5-acre mixed-use development that contained a 4-story medical office building and parking deck. The main plaza is located across from Dearborn City Hall and is intended as a prominent public gathering space. This project is LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certificated at the silver level. Numerous sustainable design techniques were incorporated into the project such as the use of native plantings to eliminate the need for irrigation, the capture of stormwater runoff into infiltration planter beds, the use of recycled concrete for the roadway construction, and the use of tree grates, benches, pavers and flower pots that contain recycled materials.
