Pike Motorworks

An unusual site configuration brought rich opportunities for HEWITT’s landscape architecture design of a wonderful series of urban passages with two internal, public mid-block pedestrian connections for a two-building, mixed-use residential complex in the greater Pike/Pine neighborhood.

The internal passages – running north/south and east/west – and the complex’s curved entry plaza setback from Pike Street creates a distinct form and framework for the mixed-use architecture. At their intersection is a large public space activated by ground floor retail, live/work units, and a signature local brewpub.  The result is an appealing, engaging pedestrian-oriented space framed by seven-story architecture.
