Battery Park City (LEED™ Gold), Top Ten Award, the AIA, 2004, Award of Excellence, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities

Two green roofs contribute to the Solaire’s LEED Gold certification, achieved through a design collaboration with the architecture firm Cesar Pelli & Associates and the building systems consultants, Steven Winter Associates. The 17th floor intensive green roof is an amenity for tenants and is comprised of multiple thicknesses of growing media (6”, 12” and 18”) to accommodate a rich palette of trees shrubs, flowers and grasses. The upper level extensive roof is an elaborate tapestry of low growing sedums installed on a 3” thick layer of growing media.
