Parkside Edge wins Green Building United 2019 Groundbreaker Awardby: Kelly Sheridan
Green Building United recognized Parkside Edge at Centennial Commons with a 2019 Groundbreaker Award. Parkside Edge was recognized for Serving its combination of community parklets and green stormwater infrastructure, and for creating a new national model for civic common spaces.
Parkside Edge is a transformative park and community involvement project, beautifying the edge of Parkside Avenue in Philadelphia. The project creates new and safer pedestrian and community connections into West Fairmount Park.
Langan provided engineering services, ranging from survey to site-civil design of innovative green stormwater infrastructure, from design of traffic calming (such as a mid-block crossing with RRFBs) to permitting and construction support services. Most importantly, our work will help reconnect the residents of the Parkside neighborhood with their park.
The Groundbreaker Awards recognize green building and sustainability leadership in the region.
