Oswego Health is preparing to open their new Lakeview Center for Mental Health and Wellness in January 2021. Appel Osborne had the privilege of providing the site design for this new facility which was constructed on a former dilapidated retail property. Landscape architectural design for the new building included multiple courtyard areas, vehicular circulation and parking, pedestrian circulation including connection to an adjacent multi-use recreational trail, and plantings with screening solutions. For the safety and wellbeing of patients, site elements had to be carefully considered. Site design also significantly improved sustainability by reducing impervious surfacing by 40% and incorporating rain gardens for green storm water management practices. Appel Osborne is grateful for our longstanding relationship with Oswego Health, and we are proud to contribute to their efforts in supporting the community.
