360 State Street

 

Hailed as a national model for livable communities and awarded Connecticut’s first LEED-ND Platinum certification, this 31 story, 500 unit residential development promotes green living as well as green construction.
T|G’s work included the design and documentation of the streetscape as well as a more finely detailed drop off area and tower entry court at street level, but the major focus of T|G’s involvement has been the design of the 30,000 sf roof garden. This provides the common areas of the tower with a park-like setting in a modern aesthetic with a range of opportunities for both active and passive recreation. This elegantly detailed garden offers residents a pool and playground, as well as significant open spaces, lush planted areas and contemplative seating and conversation niches. A resilient surfaced tennis court is also planned for a lower level roofdeck.
