The Synapse Downtown Green Improvement Fund (GIF) Project is located at 360 Erie Boulevard East and 325 East Water Street.
This GIF project was part of a larger redevelopment of the site that included renovations of two existing buildings and right-of-way work. The extensive redevelopment of the site resulted in a designation by the U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED-EB Platinum certified property. The designation is the highest standard given for redeveloped properties.
The Synapse project put in place a variety of stormwater management tools to reduce runoff. It consisted of porous pavement, tree trenches, rain barrels, and a cistern system to increase infiltration and provide storage. These green practices capture stormwater runoff from an impervious area of approximately 7,261 square feet.
In total, the Synapse Downtown project captures an estimated 127,900 gallons annually.
