The Green at Parkside is a park in Washington, DC that is a public-private partnership with the District Department of the Environment (DOEE) and City Interests – a private developer that does extensive development in the Parkside area in DC. Greening Urban, LLC provided full civil engineering services and construction administration for the project. The project’s innovative design exceeded new, stringent DOEE stormwater management requirements before they were required by law. In addition:

  • DOEE provided $300,000 in grants for the innovative stormwater management system.
  • The Green at Parkside won Best Management Practice (BMP) in a Series (3rd place) for 2014 BUBBA’s awards. The Best Urban BMP in the Bay Award contest (BUBBA) recognizes the best urban BMPs that have been installed in the entire Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
  • Groundwork Anacostia River DC, a nonprofit, facilitated a job training program for local residents to participate in the installation of the project’s permeable pavers.
