Making our environment healthier for everyone is likely to be an upside of post-pandemic recovery.
From oxygen-producing street trees to broader walkways and wider spaces, here are ten ways commercial property owners and managers can rehabilitate commercial sites to be more resilient and safer spaces for all.
- Widen pedestrian plazas to enable people to spread out.
- Construct and protect bicycle paths.
- Renovate public gather places, dining terraces, common areas.
- Transform underutilized hardscape into landscaped spaces.
- Reclaim underperforming landscape areas into broad corridors.
- Introduce wide walking trails and sidewalks with lighting, shade trees, and habitat and vector-control buffer zones.
- Eliminate redundant landscape infrastructure systems, such as old irrigation grids, and introduce automation and advanced technology to improve cost, eliminate waste and improve resource management.
- Optimize amenities as flexible public spaces.
- Integrate natural systems, riverbeds, estuaries, habitats, transit areas, medians, and parks at all scales to create a sense of community.
- Activate a multi-functional landscape plan that adheres to healthy living/working guidelines and new interaction and safety norms.
