Infill Philadelphia: Soak It Up! is a partnership between the Philadelphia Water Department, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Community Design Collaborative created to explore how green stormwater infrastructure can revitalize urban neighborhoods.

Brief

The competition is composed of three design challenge categories, each of which focuses on a real urban retrofit site within a Philadelphia neighborhood,Each design team must choose one of the following categories for which it will submit an entry:

  • Industrial: Warehouse Watershed;
  • Neighborhood: Greening the Grid;
  • Commercial: Retail Retrofit.

The property owners (or representatives) for the three categories have an interest in pursuing the implementation of innovative green stormwater designs that may emerge from this competition. PWD is also committed to helping implement cost-effective designs for these sites. In order to increase the potential for implementation, the following questions need to be addressed:

  • what is the cost of the initial investment;
  • how long will it take to recover that investment;
  • what will the cost of maintenance be over the life of the system?
