Westside Volkswagen

Westside Volkswagen has been a fixture in St. Louis Park retail for over 40 years. In 2003 Landform partnered with Baker Associates Architects and the Luther Company Family of Dealerships to completely rebuild both existing facilities located along Highway 100.

Through complex hydrologic modeling, Landform shaped a solution for this redevelopment project to mitigate an existing flooding issue that was damaging automobiles every year while meeting St. Louis Park’s stringent flood plain alteration code.

The required stormwater rate control was accomplished by designing a detention basin in the lower level of the parking structure and storing water to a maximum depth of 6 inches in the surface parking areas.
