Fulton Financial Plaza
In front of the headquarters building for Fulton Financial Corporation along Queen Street in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania, an urban plaza was designed to contain a sculptural pergola, a water fountain, and seating walls that form a pedestrian-friendly environment. Adjacent outdoor seating was also designed for restaurant use.
The site contains transplanted mature trees to create a quiet space for employees and the public in the midst of an active downtown business district. Brick and iron design details are in keeping with the historic character of Lancaster City.
Derck & Edson worked on the design and implementation of this project. The tight downtown location was a challenge worth facing to bring this welcoming gathering place to the city.
