    Highway corridors and good design

    Does anyone have some good pictures or examples of well designed landscape/streetscapes for propeties that abut a major highway corridor (ie interstate, 400 series hwy in Ontario)?

    The adjacent land use is planned to be high end industrial / employment lands / prestige.

    Reports and artistic renditons would be great.
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    Contact the City of Pleasanton, CA or the City of San Ramon.

    These cities both have large scale, high end business parks that abut a major freeway corridor, They incorporate landscaping, public art, well-defined wayfinding systems, etc.

    This may not be exactly what you are looking for- but just for some food for thought... there is a Public Art installation located along the freeway going into Melbourne in Australia.

    It is like the ultimate gateway, and pretty spectacular!

    anyway here is a link to the architects that designed it!

    I like the architectural work along I-35E/94 in downtown Saint Paul, MN; also along I-35 in downtown Duluth, MN.
