Town of Tonawanda Waterfront Corridor Design
Tonawanda, NY has the opportunity to remagine an industrial corridor in a way that accepts the past industry that built the community, but will now empower its citizens to see and respect the environment in a completely new way. This project will strengthen the continuous link from Buffalo to Youngstown along the mighty Niagara and will indeed be part of the continued renaissance of Buffalo.
Named after Jack Davis (a 1955 graduate of UB’s engineering school) and his wife, Davis Hall is designed to exceed the state’s energy efficiency code by 34 percent. This building has earned the LEED Gold designation. Among its eco-friendly features: an outdoor plaza that includes water efficient landscaping and methods to capture stormwater; a small green roof; waterless urinals; bicycle racks; the use of recycled building materials; and energy efficient heating, cooling and ventilation systems.read more
Picture Main Street LIVE is a celebration of progress and a preview of what’s to come in the Village of Williamsville through tactical urbanism strategic interventions. Tactical urbanism is considered ad-hoc, often temporary intervention in the public realm that aims to transform the perception of how citizens occupy the urban landscape by proposing new, novel or more diverse uses. Making people aware of the values of city life and the value of interacting in the urban realm were some of JKLA’s project intentions. JKLA was responsible for the streetscape design, temporary installation of planting beds, and temporary striping or traffic calming measure. JKLA organized and facilitated the event with the help of over 25 volunteers. We also aided in organizing program development of Picture Main Street Live events.read more
“Green space is a high priority in our facilities development. The green roof is part of a renovation that reduces our environmental impact while expanding useful space,” said Robert Henry, Assistant Vice President for Facilities and Planning at the College at Brockport.“The green roof system acts like a sponge, soaking up rainfall and reducing the runoff from the site, having a positive impact on local water quality. In addition, the plants beautify and help to cool the rooftop, making it an enjoyable gathering place for students and administrators.”read more
