This 55ksf extensive green roof serves multiple functions. While the local environment benefits from a reduction of the heat island effect, minimized storm runoff and added protection to the roof membrane, this sedum green roof transforms a series of bare, unattractive spaces into a vibrant, lush amenity for the residents of this new development. The green roof is perhaps the most visible element of the suite of high end amenities and finishes envisioned by the developer, and emblematic of the continuing evolution of this historic neighborhood.
Aesthetic Values (Beauty and Visibility) One of the most visible exterior elements of the brand new Skyview Parc development, the multi-level green roof melds seamlessly with the ground level park and amenity directly to the East. This harmony is one of the key functions of the green roof, achieving a cohesion with the surrounding area and transforming a series of bare rooftops into a broad, cascading waterfall of vibrant green.
The green roof, perhaps the most visible exterior feature of this gleaming new luxury development, is symbolic of the improvements to the neighborhood. The success of this project has already led to further investment in the surrounding area, with new construction and infrastructure plans pointing toward a bright new future for Flushing. The relationship between the glitzy, upscale amenities like the green roof and the records in sales is impossible to miss- the green roof is a benefit not only to the residents and the environment at large, but as an effective sales tool for developers and marketers as well.
