On August 1, 2013, the Save the Rain Green Improvement Fund (GIF) application for the Loew’s Building was submitted. This condominium building is located at 108 West Jefferson Street in downtown Syracuse, New York. The application proposes installing green infrastructure to manage the stormwater runoff by converting the current roof into an extensive green roof.
These images are of the green roof located on top of the Gear Factory building located at 202 S. Geddes St in Syracuse, NY, taken almost a year after the installation. This green infrastructure is part of a larger project to renovate the old factory building into a community living space. The purpose of the green roof is to reduce the stormwater runoff and provide insulation for the building.
