MIDTOWN HIGH RISE
Completed in May 2012, this lush 7,000 square foot green roof project is nestled high up amongst the towers of Midtown Manhattan. Designed by HM White Site Architects and installed and maintained by New York Green Roofs, this semi-intensive green roof features diverse perennial plantings integrated with ipe decking as well as a 3-hole putting green. A series of beautiful, rolling topographic features
create an undulating meadow landscape that stands in stark contrast to the highly urban context. Its existence will not only enhance the experience of it’s users for years to come, but will also serve as a representation for progressive ecological design in the built-environment, reflecting what we can do to make our cities more liveable, efficient, and sustainable.
