902 Dryden Rd.

Ithaca, NY

902 Dryden Road will be a new multi‐family townhome development on a 1.9 acre plot along Dryden Road, built around an existing duplex. The project will add twelve townhomes clustered around landscaped grounds and a central landscaped parking area. Site amenities will include a central trash and loading area, covered bike parking, landscaped grounds and open space fronting on Fall Creek.

This site is situated adjacent to Fall Creek so special attention is paid to filtering stormwater runoff from buildings and the parking area. Landscaped areas between buildings will utilize rain gardens and bioswales to allow roof drainage to infiltrate with larger areas being intercepted by a large vegetative swale and infiltration basin.

Developed by STREAM for Modern Living Rentals, this project features architectural designs, planning, and landscape design.

Early Bird Farm Greenhouse

Newfield, NY

In 2014, Early Bird Farm expanded to its current location in Newfield, NY. The new garden center had long been in the works beginning with the purchase of a greenhouse in Pennsylvania, which remained in storage for several years while the owners acquired permits for the development of the land. STREAM Collaborative worked with LBS Ecological Design to prepare a site plan, grading plan and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan to help secure the necessary permits from DEC. The 6 acre parcel inlcuded more than a half an acre of site development and the design solution incorporated best practices for stormwater management including a rainwater collection system for irrigation and bioretention areas.

The project includes a new 13,800 SF greenhouse facility, which is a significant expansion and new location for the popular Ithaca area grower. Early Bird Farm has been a family owned business since 1959 and they are the area’s largest commercial greenhouse offering a wide selection of annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs and hanging baskets.

Troy Road Residential


Ithaca, NY

STREAM Collaborative is working with Rural Housing Preservation Associates on a planned community just two miles outside the City of Ithaca along Troy Road. The project sits on a 68 acre former farm, crossed by overhead utility lines. The landscape includes a wooded knoll in the center with open fields and two small glens. Consolidating the two utility lines into one corridor `significantly opens up the parcel for new development. However, the current zoning only allows for low density residential, which would have a significant impact on this beautiful piece of land if homes were to be distributed across the entire parcel. Instead, the developer’s approach is to cluster the homes on less than one-third of the parcel leaving the remaining two-thirds as protected open-space for active and passive recreation. The project would provide much needed housing in the middle income demographic.

9182 South Rhodes Rd.


Lodi, NY

This stunning piece of property on the east side of Seneca Lake was designed by Noah Demarest over a period of several years beginning in 2008. The project began with a 200 ft long dry laid seawall, deck and landscape design. A new beach house and extensive renovations on the existing house were designed by Peter Steer AIA, beautifully executed by Bruno Schickel and his team. Work on the site design continued, adding several stone retaining walls, pathways, steps, and a waterfall fountain constructed by Kevin Reilly. Final lighting and planting design was completed with Kim Michaels from TWMLA. A comprehensive planting plan was installed over several seasons as construction ended. Plantings feature ornamental grasses, expansive carpets of sedums, Asian-influenced evergreen rock gardens, woodland plantings of ferns and hostas, and much more.

Gallagher Pier


Buffalo, NY

The Gallagher Pier pavilions provide some much needed relief from the sun along the new Buffalo Outer Harbor waterfront trail. The design is inspired by the heavy industrial heritage of the waterfront district with views to some of the historic grain elevators. The use of playful color, real wood and semi-transparent roof, and graceful curves contrast the heavy and cold galvanized steel structure.

Pavilion structures and site layout designed by Noah Demarest with Trowbridge Wolf Michaels’ Margot Chiuten, Bret LeBleu and Kathryn Wolf (Principal in Charge). Structural Engineering by Joe Fonzi of Parson Brinckerhoff.
