NYC’s Largest Residential Green Roof Unveiled

Zeckendorf Towers, the famed pyramid-topped building that initiated the revitalization of Union Square more than 20 years ago, set a new benchmark for the booming neighborhood with the opening of the city’s largest residential green roof last month.

Located at One Irving Place, the 14,000 square-foot green roof will put the full block, mixed-use property at the forefront of New York City’s new green roof initiative. In late September, Mayor Michael Bloomberg kicked off NYC Green Infrastructure, a major campaign aimed at integrating infrastructure, such as green roofs, to improve water and air quality, cool the City, and reduce energy bills and greenhouse gas emissions.
