The North Vancouver MEC Store features innovative ecological strategies to mitigate the urban heat island and stormwater runoff while providing recreational spaces for store customers, staff, and visitors to Lynn Mouth Park. The building and parking areas are surrounded by rain gardens planted with rushes, sedges and irises, along with pedestrian scaled spaces, bicycle facilities, and a boardwalk to a community room. The permeable pavers and tree trenches in the parking lot also contribute to its capacity to retain 100% of a 10-year storm water event on site.
