The Target Retail Store, located in the City of Chicago’s ?Loop? area, features a large, 7,128 ft2 green roof that complements the multistory structure. Visible from the observation deck of the Sears Tower, the GreenGrid? Green Roof covers approximately 10% of the building?s rooftop.

The green roof is composed of 891 Extensive (4-inch) GreenGrid? modules and was fully installed in 5 days during June 2004. The GreenGrid? extensive modules were planted with a Sedum species mix containing Sedum acre, Sedum ?Bailey?s Gold,? and Sedum spurium ?Dragon?s Blood.? The photos were taken shortly after installation was completed.
