The retrofit of a decommissioned airport, Vista Field represents an ambitious endeavor that aims to raise the bar in infrastructure re-purposing and creative place-making. This past summer saw progress with the phase one streets, sidewalks, utilities, and landscaping at the center of Vista Field continuing to take shape.
DPZ has worked on this project for over a decade with the help of Tim Arntzen (executive director for Port of Kennewick), Larry Peterson (director of planning and development for Port of Kenewick), ECONWest, Paul Crabtree, Parametrix, John Anderson, Tom Low, Michael Mehaffy, Laurence Qamar, and a host of other consultants.
