About the Project:

The new, LEED Platinum Gateway Center at the State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry campus in Syracuse, New York, exemplifies the college’s philosophical principles of sustainability with its fully-accessible, intensive green roof that showcases rare New York plant communities. In addition to collecting, filtering, and absorbing stormwater, the green roof has the potential to advance our knowledge of how to use native species and communities in these unforgiving environments.
