Wind generation can be enhanced by hybridizing the wind farm form with strategically shaped and placed buildings. These buildings act to catch, direct and accelerate wind currents.

The self storage program is one that is adaptable to any footprint and apolitical enough to be placed within almost any context. Additionally, self storage makes for a cheap yet profitable placeholder-tenant. This allows construction to begin prior to locking in serious tenants.

The intervention as a whole acts to invigorate the industrial banks of the Mystic River with a waterfront park and boardwalk peppered with amenities. This park will compliment the upcoming Assembly Square shopping development and T Stop across the river.
