Halff collaborated with Harris County to create the master plan for Atascocita Park, a 21-acre park immediately west of Lake Houston. The destination park, which was completed in March 2020, was featured in Landscape Architect and Specifier News magazine.
The master plan celebrated the park’s natural conditions and addressed challenging drainage situations. The plan identified natural opportunities and incorporated a variety of recreational elements such as a playground, dog parks and a boardwalk without impeding drainage conditions or unnecessarily removing existing vegetation. Halff’s services included landscape architecture, park master planning, construction documentation, civil and structural services, MEP, surveying and environmental services.

The City of Tallahassee and Halff have been recognized with a Grand Award in Transportation from the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Florida for the Florida A&M University (FAMU) Way project.
This premier Tallahassee and Blueprint Intergovernmental Agency project was unanimously approved by the City of Tallahassee Commission to enhance transportation and serve as a major community investment in the southern side of the City.
The City of Tallahassee’s goal was to develop a seamless connection between Florida State University and Florida A&M University by providing a safe and beautiful mobility corridor for all forms of transportation. Coined “the most beautiful road in Tallahassee,” Halff commenced with FAMU Way corridor planning in 2007. Construction was completed on the third phase of the project in early 2021.
