Want to learn more about green streetscape technologies? Brook McIlroy’s Lakeshore Road Streetscape redesign in Downtown Oakville has been featured as a case study on the DeepRootblog for its use of Silva Cells, a technology which contributes to sustainable stormwater management and leads to healthy street trees. The overall streetscape design reinforces Oakville’s sense of place and creates the infrastructure appropriate for a busy downtown thoroughfare, while mitigating its impact to the environment. Silva Cells create space for trees underneath the sidewalk, allowing for increased root growth while storing and filtering stormwater runoff from the surrounding street and sidewalk.
