2017 Vision Award for Water - Data 1, Stephen C. Grey and Associates
Data 1 is LEED Gold registered, and this Salmon-Safe certified building’s landscape features biofiltration retention planters that treat the 160,000 gallons of heavily polluted rainwater runoff from the Aurora Bridge annually. Previously, runoff from the bridge was carried down the bridge columns to the surface of Troll Avenue, then into a storm drain, flowing untreated into Lake Union. Two future phases of remediation are planned on nearby properties with the goal of treating over 2 million gallons of polluted runoff annually. The stormwater goals were achieved in collaboration with our Green Stormwater program. The building will be fully occupied by the end of the year.
