Solving Two Problems with One Wall

When a businessman decided to redevelop a vacant 1950s warehouse along the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, he knew that parking and stormwater runoff would be an issue.

VERSA-LOK Standard retaining walls system was selected to make the hill between the street and a riverwalk usable for parking.

Each side of the renovated building includes terraced retaining walls for plantings to transition from the street to the parking lot and lower level of the building. A series of five rain gardens and an infiltration pond were also installed to prevent nearly all runoff from entering the city's storm drain system.
