Designing A Better World Through Site Planning and Green Thinking – from VHB

Designing A Better World Through Site Planning and Green Thinking - from VHB

As we continue to celebrate Earth Day this week, we put the spotlight on member firm VHB and their work on a  $2.3 billion private investment in Henrico County, Virginia, that will reposition a 204-acre underutilized parcel into a sustainable and resilient community, called GreenCity.

The transformation will result in the creation of a dynamic mixed-use ecodistrict that will attract new businesses, create jobs, and generate millions in tax revenue for the community.

VHB’s integrated services team worked alongside Green City Partners, LLC, a partnership between Future Cities and Concord Eastridge, to prepare the master development plan and provide recommendations for future infrastructure. Formerly the Best Products headquarters, and dormant for more than a decade, GreenCity will include mixed income housing, forested areas and parks, buildings designed to specifically interact with the environment, and a multi-modal transportation network designed for walkability and connectivity. A 17,000-seat arena with flexible seating configurations for large events or sports teams will anchor the development and be constructed using green best practices. Learn more about the project here.

All comments to blog posts will be moderated by ACEC staff.
