Eco Factor: Vertical EV parking system features photovoltaic louvers, wind turbines and an algae farm.

Aiming to take on the problematic issue of parking in Mumbai, India, Seth Ellsworth & Jayoung Kim have designed a residential community that will also behave as a vertical parking tower for electric vehicles. Envisioned for the year 2030 when parked cars will cover nearly 25% of the city, the “Tata Tower” is a vertical parking system that would accommodate 4,050 cars, freeing up ground area for use as green space.

The building will include 930 residences for employees of Tata, the largest automaker in India. It will incorporates as many eco-friendly features as possible to offer a healthy and green future living. It will include a handful of renewable energy features like photovoltaic louvers, building-integrated wind turbines, tri-generation, and an algae farm that would be used to power itself and the cars. It is expected that the Tata Tower holds the potential to become a landmark for the city and will stand as a model for sustainable vertical parking for the world.
