An extensive renovation of the grimy and lackluster bus transfer station in the heart of downtown Phoenix is now lively and dynamic, and highlights Phoenix’s commitment to sustainability. Many noteworthy environmental benefits are showcased on this LEED EBOM project: adaptive re-use of bus shelters, energy-efficient LED lighting, bike lockers and bike racks, and use of reclaimed concrete from the site for seating. The landscape architects provided a variety of seating experiences, as well as vertical shade elements, overhead structures with solid or filtered light and large shade trees planted in structural soil to reduce the heat island effect. The irrigation system has several water-saving features that will save water and energy. 100% pervious paving increases infiltration by capturing the first flush of rainfall; the pattern is representative of a carpet, weaving the captivating civic space park to the north with the plaza and acts as wayfinding between the north and southbound light rail trains.
