The Onondaga Commons Plaza is home to several local businesses on the Near Westside of Syracuse. Onondaga Commons has partnered with the Onondaga County Save the Rain program on several stormwater management projects as part of a comprehensive redevelopment of approximately 4 acres of surface parking area across the commercial property. The collection of projects includes a diverse mix of green infrastructure elements to manage stormwater on site.
The Onondaga Commons: Rural Metro project includes the installation of porous pavement in the new parking area in front of the building. The porous pavement will capture the parking lot area as well as half of the Rural Metro Building’s roof runoff (the remaining roof area will be directed to another Onondaga Commons green infrastructure project).
This portion of the Onondaga Commons project will have approximately 18,500 square feet of green infrastructure installed to capture an estimated 920,200 gallons of stormwater annually.
