It's not the most efficient, but please review! Thanks!

I just tried this alternate and got something similar, although I oriented the office tower E-W and put the parking lot to its south.

A few things you might check:

- Is the pedestrian plaza protected from winter winds? Deciduous trees don't provide protection. I added an arc of conifers around north side of my stage.
- Is the plaza sufficiently shaded? The restaurant will only cast a 20' shadow. I put a few deciduous trees in my plaza...not sure if this is allowed though.
- Is it OK for the service drive to pass through the parking lot? I assumed it could not, but it's not mentioned in the program so if it is an error I'd guess it's not critical.

Good luck on your test!

Thank you for your response! Good things to look into for clarification. I did want to let you know that I have been told to NOT place trees on the plaza (unless stated by the program?), so be careful of that.

Good luck to you too!

Is it allowed to have the continuous pedestrian circulation have someone walk over the drive?
