A Landscape Design Helps Revive the Industrial Past of West Oakland.

The March 2011 Landscape Architecture Magazine just published a big piece on the award winning landscaping at PCL and its roll in reviving the history of the Industrial Past of West Oakland.. The courtyards at Pacific Cannery Lofts in addition to the surrounding and connecting greenways pull together the people living in the various developments that make up the Central Station community This award winning landscape plan was designed and created by Jeff Miller and his team at the Miller Company and has been instrumental in the creation of the new neighborhood. Jeff enjoys designing gardens for individual people but his real interest is in community spaces and issues related to communities. Central Station is a tru example of that.
