Working with Hines/Pelli,Clarke,Pelli and Peter Walker Partners, Aurora brought together a winning ecological design team to collaborate with Atelier Ten and Rana Creek Living Architecture. The teams designed the sky park’s eco-tone approach, bringing diversity to the public green space. Rana creek also sized and designed the rooftop garden to absorb and process the storm-water from the 1,200 foot tower that is to accompany the terminal. The district was purple-piped and there was a conceptual design for an integrated co-generation facility. The vegetation and soils will mitigate the carbon from the buses, the urban heat island effect as well as the storm-water.
