Project Description

Croton Water Filtration Plant is a large-scale infrastructure landscape for the new drinking water filtration plant in the Bronx. This environmentally sensitive site in Van Cortland Park exemplifies the contemporary trend of multi-use infrastructure with an emphasis on public use and sustainability with a program implementing a new golf driving range, stormwater management, and security.

The 9-acre green roof of the plant is designed as a sculptural landscape disguising below-grade structure and functions as a golf driving range. A stormwater system collects runoff from the roof structure and provides phyto-remediation in a series of treatment cells ringing the driving range.
