This dynamic, 2200 SF intensive green roof on the LEED? Platinum Visionaire building in Battery Park City with commanding views of New York Harbor sets a new precedent for cultivated abundance.

Agricultural features include a square foot garden for urban agriculture, a cold frame for continuous harvest, vertical frames for climbing vegetables, a fruit orchard, herbal knot garden, and berry patch. In 2011, the custom cold frame on the Visionaire Green Roof supplied spinach and lettuce all winter long.
Rolling landscapes enfold entertainment areas with lush plantings, creating privacy and framing views for a series of outdoor rooms. Diners sit beneath a sail-shaped wood and steel pergola and overlook iridescent, double-helix glass fountains. An exotic alpine garden takes advantage of the rooftop microclimate to display miniature specimen plantings. The varied plant palette of more than one hundred eighty species of perennials, vegetables, shrubs, and trees, creates an island of ecological diversity in lower Manhattan.
