CASE STUDY

University Station
Mixed Use Development

WESTWOOD, MASSACHUSETTS

Specifics

Owner:

Massachusetts DOT


Location:

Westwood, MA

 

Description:

5’X7’ StormTree® Units

The 130-acre University Station project is one of Massachusetts largest development projects transforming a vast stretch of former industrial property along Interstate 95 into a miniature city with hundreds of new homes, stores, and transportation hub.

 

Stormwater management and green infrastructure played a role in the design and execution of a portion of the project in close proximity to a heavily used commuter railroad station and major interstate highway. StormTree® being an approved vendor for the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) was chosen by the site contractor to provide tree filter systems at a heavily traveled intersection adjacent to the railroad station.

 

Each 5’ X 7’ StormTree® unit was designed to service approximately 0.25 acres of impervious road surface. The advantage of utilizing an “open design” tree filter system allowed for installing a subsurface high infiltrating media bed within a 7’ X 10’ subsurface footprint beneath the sidewalk. Given sidewalk and pedestrian setback constraints, this flexibility provided a tremendous advantage compared to a closed box system which would require a larger concrete footprint.

 

Amur Maple (Acer Ginalla “Ruby Slippers”) and Callery Pear (Acer Calleryana “Cleveland Select”) were selected for both their ornamental value, narrow growth pattern, and for their proven durability as street trees.
