Garden Roof on ESF Gateway Center Selected for Design Award by the New York Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects
The green roof atop the Gateway Center of the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) has been awarded a Merit Award from the New York Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA-NY).
The ESF project was funded with a $413,000 Green Innovation Grant from the New York State Environmental Facilities Corp. (EFC). It is one of 12 sustainable projects in Onondaga County that have been awarded a total of more than $6.6 million from the Green Innovation Grant Program (GIGP), part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s regional economic development initiative.
The ESF roof features plant species from the shores of Lake Ontario (furnished by Motherplants, an Ithaca-based supplier of green-roof materials).
Designed by Andropogon Associates of Philadelphia, the stormwater-management project was selected for one of 13 Merit Awards judged by a panel from the Northern California Chapter of the ASLA.
