Green Roof Design
This 1960’s era high-rise residential community along the Charles River needed to replace the waterproofing over the facility’s underground parking garage. Brown, Richardson + Rowe’s green roof design replaced the raised planters that held stunted 40-year-old plantings suffering from poor drainage and cramped quarters. Now large trees and shrubs, brick walkways, enhance a new pedestrian connection to Thoreau Path. The residents enjoy a welcoming, functional, and maintainable landscape.
