The story of how the Colonade, a Raleigh retail development, transformed how the developer and environmental consultants think about ROI in green infrastructure.
A first person report from two people directly involved with developing Colonade, Mark Peternell, Regency Centers, and Patrick Smith, Soil & Environmental Consultants. Our opinions about the technical and financial viability of green infrastructure changed as a result of the success of our Market at Colonnade shopping center in Raleigh, North Carolina. This project’s commitment to stormwater management has opened doors for both of our firms and started transforming how we think about the return on investment (ROI) in green infrastructure.
