The gardens for this apartment project, which are across The Embarcadero from the South Beach Park and Harbor site, were designed in 1987 by Mr. Fotheringham. (He was a Senior Associate at EDAW, San Francisco at that time.) The garden design required locating the swimming pool in a micro-climate that would receive the most sunlight throughout the year, given the shadow patterns of the various high-rise buildings. Courtyards were designed to relate to interior lobby spaces, using similar tile paving and axial views. The planting plan is composed of shade-tolerant species such as Rhododendrons, Azaleas, Hebe and Boxwood. Recent changes to the garden design do not reflect the original design.
