Return on Investment for Green Roofs

This article (page 17) demonstrates that developers can get a return on investment from the installation of a green roof.  Residential units with access the green roof sold for 3X the value of the units without this access.


Green roofs are more than “just costs and requirements”.  We can expect to see more green roofs as progressive developers continue understand the return on investment and incorporate them into the pro-forma phase of the development.
