Piedmont Way Historic Rehabilitation

Location: Location Berkeley


Working with a preservation architecture firm, PGAdesign had primary re­sponsibility for preparing a Historic Landscape Report (HLR) for the California Memorial Stadium, which included a portion of Piedmont Way. Its significance comes from Frederick Law Olmsted’s vision of this avenue as one of the first residential parkways.

PGAdesign was retained by the Friends of Piedmont Way to develop an inventory and evaluation of the landscape as the first step in completing a Historic American Landscape Survey (HALS). Piedmont Way was one of three sites whose documentation initiated the new national program modeled after the Historic American Building Survey (HABS).

PGAdesign completed a rehabilitation plan for a key five­-block section of the street, with the piece adjacent to the Cal Stadium completed at the time of the stadium upgrade.
