North Albina Triangle
Location: Portland, Oregon
DEA was commissioned to create a greenstreet facility to manage stormwater while providing an open space benefit to the local neighborhood. The design includes a traffic-calming curb extension combined with a vegetated stormwater swale and infiltration facility. Overall, the project will treat and infiltrate, to the extent practicable, water from more than 6,000 square feet of impervious area that had previously been conveyed directly to the city’s combined sewer system.
