The highest and best use of a landscape architect’s skill is to create quality places that make lives better. Working with LIFT Orlando, the City of Orlando and Columbia Residential, we are grateful to have had the opportunity to design Pendana, a mixed-income, multi-family residential development that is expected to help uplift and support residents in a key part of the historic West Lakes neighborhood. Today, partners came together to plant street trees donated by the NFL. We look forward to seeing kids on those sidewalks soon as they make their way to school from Pendana, which, by the way, is Swahili for “love one another.” Yes!
