Building on Good Hope in More Ways than One

Why Building Owners Are Investing in Green Infrastructure

It’s easy to understand the intangible benefits up on Bread for the City’s roof, surrounded by greenery. The tomato vines in one patch are a tempting shade of red. Next to them, bees are buzzing in a patch of flowers not far from the currently out-of-use bee colonies. Cacti, eggplants, and dozens of other crops round out the display.

“Staff eat lunch up there, do yoga up there sometimes, we have open hours in the garden,” Kristen Kozlowski, associate director of development for Bread for the City, told Aquicore. “It’s a beautiful, safe, green space.”
