Tacoma Green Infrastructure Challenge

STW Business District

Tacoma, WA

For this design challenge, our team envisioned a transformation of the South Tacoma Way (STW) Business District into a vibrant center that radiates out into the surrounding community, depict­ed on the site plan as ‘growth rings’ found within trees. An improved pedestrian experience with gathering spaces and opportunities to express local art/culture was the basis of our design, which was further enhanced through increased tree canopy cover and 100% stormwater mitigation.
