Queens is getting greener with a new 55,000 s/f green roof atop a Flushing luxury condo.
The 448-unit Skyview Park Development at 40-28 College Point Boulevard teamed up with Blondie’s Treehouse to create one of Queen’s largest green roofs. The green roof made of sedum plants was installed in phases between February and March.
According to Blondie’s, the green roof will provide the community with several benefits including lower temperatures, reducing storm water runoff, and increasing property values.
Blondie’s CEO Howard K. Freilech said their new multi-level green roof, combined with the ground level park and other green amenities creates a “cascading waterfall of vibrant green.”He added, “The green roof, perhaps the most visible exterior feature of this gleaming new luxury development, is symbolic of the improvements to the neighborhood.
