|Target?s retail store on Chicago?s northwest side now features an environmentally friendly green roof. The almost 10,000 ft2 green roof portion is designed to help reduce pollution and cut the store?s energy and maintenance costs. Another unique aspect of this building is that it is a complete reuse/expansion of a former department store vacant for the past 20 years.|
|Target's 9,664 ft2 GreenGrid? green roof was completed in 4 days. The 1,208 GreenGrid? extensive modules were planted with Sedum acre, Sedum kamtschaticum, Sedum rupestre ?Foresteranum?, Sedum spurium ?Dragon?s Blood?, and Sedum spurium ?Bailey?s Gold.? The green roof design called for entire rows of one species of sedum which, when mature, will illustrate a striped pattern on the roof deck.|
