The Twin Cities are taking notice of the green roof trend sweeping the region. Today, the Star Tribune featured the new LiveRoof brand green roof recently installed at Hamline University. The project includes a blend of Sedums with taller drought-tolerant grasses and native and adapted non-native perennials.
Located on the southwest edge of Hamline’s campus in St. Paul, Minn., the 100,000-square-foot Anderson Center will be the official entrance to campus and a stunning meeting place for students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors. The three-level glass and terra cotta building will bring together good food, meeting rooms, meditative spaces, a Spirit Store, and state-of-the-art technology to support the formal and informal gatherings that create bonds within the university. The project is designed to meet U.S. Green Building Council LEED® Silver standards. The Anderson Center will officially open its doors in the fall of 2012.
