Balboa Peninsula Renovation

Owner: City of Newport Beach

Landscape Architect: Nuvis

The historic Balboa Pavilion returns to take its place as the centerpiece along Balboa Peninsula’s Main Street. The City of Newport Beach’s renovation project improves and complements the Balboa Village scene by upgrading the street pavement using sturdy materials with classic patterns and colors to create a vintage Village atmosphere. Granite, mother-of-pearl, and indigo glass using special acid wash and pavement finishing techniques create dramatic pavement improvements on Balboa Boulevard and the pier plaza. New streetlights, benches, pots, trees, hanging baskets, and landscaped areas add to the transformation of the Village into a residential, entertainment and recreation mecca.
