Portfolio Detail: Taubman Prestige Outlets
The Taubman Prestige Outlet is a 310,000 square feet retail outlet mall with open-air village style shopping. The levee at the rear of the development dictated that no trees were to be located within over 400 feet of the center of the levee, so, with that in mind, stainless steel sculptural "trees" are found in the center courtyard with Clematis vines providing foliage. No sewer system exists on the site, utilizing bio-retention areas at the perimeter and throughout the courtyard, directing rain water into these areas to allow the water to drain into the ground water layers of the soil.
The landscape in Phase One of the development includes 342 trees, 2016 shrubs, 3599 perennials, 55 roses and 400 ornamental grasses. In addition, the bio-retention areas include over 17,683 plants.
