barclays-green-roof-render-040714

Barclays is planning to replace its roof with a green one, which will also deaden sound from concerts, The Wall Street Journal reported. The green roof was part of the initial plan for the center but was nixed years ago to rein in costs, according to the paper.

The roof of the subway entrance was planted in sedum in 2012. Atlantic Yards Report was the first to write about the revived plans for the green roof. How do you like it?
