It is with heavy hearts that we at Land Concern announce the passing of our beloved founder, mentor, and esteemed landscape architect, Rob Sawyer. Rob devoted over 50 years of his life to serving others, and his passion for landscape architecture and inspiring young professionals was evident in all he did.
Land Concern is all about bringing client visions to life, enhancing the sense of place and sparking new connections. So, when it came to transforming The Hangout at Esencia in Rancho Mission Viejo, we collaborated with Adam Tenenbaum, Rancho Mission Viejo and a team of developers to shine a new light on this outdoor wonderland.
Land Concern’s own Andrew Bowden, principal, participated as a panelist in the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Technical Assistance Panel (TAP). The City of La Quinta approached ULI with the task of conducting a TAP study to evaluate the long-term economic viability for Highway 111 Corridor and the surrounding area. Comprised of a team of 12 real estate development professionals, TAP panelists then provide The City with strategic ideas that could bring new energy, engagement opportunities and long-term economic success to the Study Area.
