SE Group worked with the City of Burlington to create a vision for the vacant Moran Power Generating facility, turning it into a vibrant, mixed-use activity center. Amenities for the project included a new bike path and pedestrian promenade, skate park, and integrated Community Sailing Center.

In consideration of the project’s environmentally sensitive waterfront location and past industrial use, extra care was given to integrate environmental remediation and innovate stormwater design.

This project includes a series of gravel wetlands to help significantly reduce nutrient levels in the stormwater that enters Lake Champlain. Through anaerobic process and natural update of phosphorus by the native plant material this innovative design significantly improves stormwater treatment beyond State of Vermont requirements.
