Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Fairfax Boulevard Commerce Corridor Charles Town and Ranson, W. Va. Originally planned as a part of the two towns' master plans prepared in 1892, Fairfax Boulevard was going to be the primary civic artery connecting the two towns into a single functioning unit. After more than one hundred years, the towns recognized the need to finally implement the notion of the original vision in a manner that served modern needs. Stromberg / Garrigan & Associates served as the lead landscape architects and urban designers for the 1.1-mile corridor reconstruction as a new street facility with extensive green infrastructure. Extensive use of Best Management Practices (BMPs) included passive treatment bioswales in medians, structural soil cells under sidewalks and modular flow-through planters, along with extensive naturalized plantings. The $12M project received two U.S. DOT TIGER grants and was the recipient of two Phoenix Awards at the 2013 U.S. EPA National Brownfields Conference held in Atlanta, Ga. Stromberg / Garrigan & Associates is a full-service landscape architecture and urban design practice founded in 2007 by its two principals, Timothy J. Stromberg, MLA and Sean C. Garrigan, MLA, both graduates of the University of Pennsylvania. The firm has fourteen employees located in three offices in Metro Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Norfolk, Va. It is a collective studio of landscape architects, architects, engineers, planners and urban designers that focus on ways to improve the human and ecological environment through innovative and collaborative design. SGA specializes in the practice of "land recycling," often reusing contaminated sites referred to as brownfields.
