Green Roofs at Indian Point

1.  LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT

Low Impact Development (LID) is an innovative stormwater management approach with a basic principle that is modeled after nature: manage rainfall at the source using uniformly distributed decentralized micro-scale controles.  LID's goal is to mimic a site's predevelopment hydrology by using design techniques that infiltrate, filter store, evaporate, and detain runoff close to it's source.  Techniques are based on the premise that stormwater management should not be seen as stormwater disposal instead of conveying and managing/treating stormwater in large, costly end-of pipe facilities located at the bottom of drainage areas, LID addresses stormwater through small, cost-effective landscape features located at the ID level.  These landscape features, known as Integrated Management Practices (IMPs), are the building blocks of not only open space, but also rooftops, streetscapes, parking lots, sidewalks, and medians. LID is a versatile approach that can be applied equally to new develiopment, urban retrofits, and redevelopment/revitalization projects.

2. RAIN GARDENS

Bioretention cells are dynamic, living, micro-ecological systems. They demonstrate how the landscape can be used to protect ecosystem integrity.

The design of bioretention cells involves, among other things, the hydrologic cycle, nonpoint pollutant tratment, resource conservation, habitat creation, nutrient cycles, soil chemistry, horticulture, landscape architecture, and ecology; the cell thus necessarily demonstrates a multitude of benefits.

Beyond it's use for stormwater control, the bioretention cell provides attractive landscaping and natural habitat for birds and butterflies. The increased soil moisture, evapotranspiration, and vegetation coverage creates a comfortable local climate. Bioretention cells can also be used to reduce problems with on-site erosion and high levels of flow energy.

3.  GREEN ROOFS

Green Roofs, also known as vegetated roof covers, eco-roofs or nature roofs, are multy beneficial structural components that help to mitigate the effects of urbanization on water quality by filtering, absorbing or detaining rainfall.

They are constructed of a lightweight soil media, underlain by a drainage layer and a high quality impermeable membrane that protects the building structure.

The soil is planted with specialized mix of Sedum that can thrive in the harsh conditions of the roof and tolerate periods of inundulation from storm events.

Green roofs provide stormwater management benefits by:

Additional benefits include:

  1. Reducing city "heat island effect
  2. Reduce summer CO2 impact
  3. Reduce summer air conditioning cost
  4. Reduce winter heat demand
  5. Potentially lengthen roof life 2 to 3 times
  6. Treat nitrogen pollution in rain
  7. Negate acid rain effect
  8. Help reduce volume and peak rates of stormwater

Utilizing the biological, physical, and chemical processes found in the plant and soil complex to prevent airborn pollutants form entering the storm drain system.

Reducing the runoff volume and peak discharge rate by holding back and slowing down tha water that would otherwise flow quickly into the storm drain system.

Green Roofs

Indian Point will be constructed with green roofs on entire south building and half of east building. these roofs were designed flat to accomodate green roofing and open the view to other neighbors.

This project looks fabulous and is poised to be THE place to live in Port Townsend.

We can't wait to see the finished product.

The interior layout looks attractive. However, based on the CAD renderings, I find it unfortunate that the exterior elevations are not more compatible with the 'feeling' of Port Townsend. Unless the project is trying to blend in with the Tides Inn (that couldn't decide how it wanted to look, so added brick, shingles and siding).
