WGI’s Role: A Multidisciplinary Masterpiece

WGI’s pivotal role in the success of The Waterford’s redevelopment was highlighted by our mission – to create a cost-effective and comprehensive site solution that met various jurisdiction requirements while enhancing the overall resident experience.

Seamless Integration of Services

Our multidisciplinary expertise allowed us to deliver a cohesive and functional site plan, incorporating civil engineering, landscape architecture, structural engineering, and MEP services.

One of the standout features of our involvement was the innovative rooftop amenity design atop the new garage structure. This space was meticulously planned and executed, offering residents a unique outdoor environment.

The landscape architecture team also designed various activity programs throughout the property, each with its own character. Highlights include a grand arrival area adorned with accent pavers and formal palm trees, a memory garden enclosed by colorful tropical plantings, and three private courtyards with meandering pathways formed by ornamental grasses. Additionally, a re-imagined waterfront walking experience surrounds the new storm retention area, providing a tranquil setting for residents to enjoy nature.
