Lloyd Crossing Sustainable Urban Design

GreenWorks was part of an inter-disciplinary team developing a long range sustainable redevelopment plan for a mixed-use, 35 block (54 acre) area in Northeast Portland. GreenWorks’ primary responsibility was developing an open space network strategy, sustainable streetscape design concepts, rainwater harvesting on a large scale, habitat creation, and dense urban forestry approaches for the area. We also looked at creating a connection between the Lloyd District and the Willamette River through Sullivans Gulch as it existed historically. In addition to developing guidelines for the entire project area, GreenWorks developed a sustainable site plan for the “Catalyst Project.” This is a financially feasible, two-block initial phase which implements the overall district plan on a smaller scale. The “Catalyst Project” also includes the schematic design of a new public park adjacent to the development. This project received an ASLA Honor Award in the Analysis and Planning Category, 2005; AIA Committee on the Environment, Top Ten Award, 2005; and Commendation Award, Seattle AIA Honor Awards, Washington Architecture Program, 2004.
