Working with Virginia Garcia staff, Metro, and the City of Cornelius, Shapiro Didway developed a sustainable entry plaza, extensive rain garden system, parking area, and a pedestrian corridor that provided connectivity to surrounding urban spaces. Key features of the entry plaza included; permeable pavers set in wide curving bands, native plantings, seating, and a user friendly vegetable garden intended to promote healthy nutrition. Along the east side of the building a rain sculpture was incorporated into the site along with seating and interpretive signage.
