Projects: Residential and Commercial Developments

United States Tennis Association
Queens, New York

The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows in Queens, New York is the world’s largest public tennis facility and host of the US Open. To accommodate barrier free access to a new 230,000 sf indoor multi-purpose venue, RGR Landscape (RGR) redesigned the Tennis Center’s East Plaza, which is one of three major entry points for thousands of visitors who attend each day of the annual US Open event. The landscape reconstruction work for the plaza included approximately 70,000 sf of new pedestrian paving, a central allee of 24 new shade trees, decorative fencing, and entry gates as well as ancillary planting, paving, and fencing around the perimeter of the new building. An important aspect of the design was maximizing visibility and accessibility to the retail frontage bordering the plaza.
