Project: Urban Design + Planning

Landstory prepared the Master Plan in 2009 for a site that included the historic landmarks of Old State Bank, Territorial Capitol Village, Fort Knox II and Sugar Loaf Mound, all located in Vincennes, Indiana. The process included site assessment and analysis, program definition, concept development and master plan implementation strategies. The key assessment and program activities for the site plan included development of capital projects, provision for wayfinding and connectivity elements, pedestrian enhancements and vehicular drop off and parking facilities. Landstory was then selected in 2016 by ISMHS to prepare further refinements and a cost estimate for three of the four original properties above. The plan for Territorial Capitol Village is planned for implementation in early 2018.

Lucas Oil Stadium

Are you ready for some football?! We were, but not without telling the story of Alexander Ralston’s vision and layout for downtown Indianapolis, developed in 1825.  Lucas Oil Stadium’s site orientation reinforces and commemorates Ralston’s original design of the mile‐square and historic diagonal streets that once radiated from Monument Circle. The unique diagonal orientation of the stadium allows spectators striking views of central downtown while the tree‐lined urban grid of the exterior gives pedestrians a comfortable space to enjoy pre‐game festivities. Landstory serve as Landscape Architect of Record for this important downtown destination.
