Croton Water Treatment Plant
The Mosholu Golf Course, designed by Grimshaw Architects and Ken Smith Landscape Architects, is situated atop the Croton Water Treatment Plant in the Bronx, NY. Croton is the largest infrastructure project for the City of New York, processing a third of NYC's drinking water. The building is nine acres wide, and sinks 12 stories into the earth. The golf course, which is the largest continuous living roof in North America, is the only visible part of the plant. Croton is surrounded by a wetland stormwater and groundwater management system designed by Great Ecology as part of the Grimshaw Architects team.
