Build it and they will come definitely is an axiom that applies to the recently opened plaza at Gale Ranch, designed to serve the residents of the affluent and fast-growing area on the east side of San Ramon, California. It is therefore no surprise that the developer sought an extraordinary entrance to this 126,000-square-foot retail and office development. It was key to create a memorable element representative of the development’s scale and vision. Enter David Gates of David Gates & Associates, a landscape architecture firm hired by the owner to create a visual reference point for this mixed-use development. It was David Gates vision to create an ‘iconic art’ element for the community to relate to - for the community to identify themselves with and create a sense of place. The result is a classic and timeless water feature positioned at the front entrance of the complex.
