Landscape architect Tim Orlando, Silver Rail Construction, and Green Roof Blocks are proud to share this one of a kind terrace project situated in Lower West Manhattan. This serene garden setting overlooks the Hudson River to the west and presents breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline to the east. Custom fitted Green Roof Blocks wind around the granite and marble plaza deck providing a continuous bed of sedums using five species that roll in waves from one to another, emulating the flow of the river below. No expense was spared to create a space that rivals the vibrant city that surrounds it.
In the Spring of 2009, 159 Green Roof Blocks and 103 Custom Green Roof Blocks were installed by Green Roof Blocks.
