San Antonio, Texas
Talley Associates provided site design and landscape architectural services for the Forest Park Medical Center in San Antonio Texas. The project was envisioned as a medical mixed use campus with a 13-story hospital, located on 8.43 acres of land, with 300+ beds and approximately 1600 parking spaces. This development also includes a 4-story, 80,000 SF MOB, located adjacent to the hospital on 4.77 acres with approximately 350 surface parking spaces. The project is targeted to be LEED certified.
Design considerations for the site included a vegetated roof, hardscape and landscape design - utilizing a low water utilization plant palette, in addition to an anticipated use of retaining walls and terraces to deal with a 35 foot grade change across the site.
Talley Associates also designed a water collection cistern system that will collect condensation from the site’s mechanical systems and chiller units. This water capturing system provides water for an entry water feature, as well as watering the landscape.
