Finishing details are underway at The Garden (formerly Mariner’s Center), a progressive retail shopping center in the Mariner's Mile Commercial District of Newport Beach. As the Landscape Architect on the project, CDPC carried out the Owner’s vision of a retail sanctuary that is nature inspired and artisan crafted. Attention to detail and hand-craftsmanship are the cornerstone to its aesthetic and functionality. Revitalization of the site was achieved through the use of precision cut metals, re-purposed salvaged elements and reclaimed wood giving the center its rustic contemporary, artistic feel. Retail space was sacrificed to create an inviting courtyard garden, a destination for the community to gather with friends and family. The Garden is home to The US Post Office, C’est Si Bon Bakery and Jewelers On Time, with new businesses coming soon. This project is definitely worth a look when in Newport.
