Eighty Seven Park is situated on the waterfront in an area that would naturally exist as a dune ecosystem. West 8’s design preserves and enhances this natural coastal condition but acknowledges the urban conditions that characterize the site today. The planting palette has been carefully curated, guided by a biotope zoning plan, to achieve site-appropriate planting that is visually and spatially stunning.
The success of the design lies in simple and bold interventions that are rooted in a deep appreciation of the site’s ecological and cultural significance. Its adjacency to the park and ocean, convenient access to the city, and unique coastal ecology—and brings them into harmony to create an urban Eden.
