This regional center is part of a new 750,000-square-foot master-planned project that includes civic, office, retail, restaurant and residential use. Located on 50 acres, the project creates a unique downtown experience for the City of Chino Hills. The retail component itself is an open air “lifestyle” center with over 400,000 sq. ft. of leasable space.
Lighting Design Alliance was tasked with reinforcing the architectural hierarchy by focusing the majority of façade accent lighting on corner tower features. LDA also designed the roadway and parking lot lighting, as well as all walkway, plaza and landscape lighting. Special attention was focused on bringing out the rich textures and colors of the planting and landscape features. Blue twinkle lights mounted within street trees canopies exemplifies the use of color to add drama and provide the center with a unique feel.
