DUKE ELLINGTON PARK
storm keys: ultra-urban stormwater retrofit
The Duke Ellington Triangle Park is a high-volume pedestrian gateway providing a platform to demonstrate stormwater management. In partnership with the District of Columbia’s Department of Energy and Environment and Golden Triangle Business Improvement District, Designgreen is responsible for stakeholder coordination, project design, permitting, construction supervision, and interpretive signage. Designgreen is harnessing existing topography, using curb cuts and sidewalk trenching to direct runoff through a sequence of bioretention, permeable pavers, and rain water harvesting. Additionally, Designgreen is creating an eco-Tour app to deepen educational opportunities for visitors.
