The 360 Warren Associates Green Improvement Fund project is located at 125 East Jefferson Street. The green roof was part of a large renovation project at the former HSBC Tower building.
The renovations to the building are consistent with other efforts to revitalize the financial district in the heart of downtown Syracuse. 360 Warren Associates partnered with the Onondaga County Save the Rain program through the Green Improvement Fund to implement green infrastructure elements to manage the stormwater runoff in conjunction with the revitalization efforts.
Managing runoff throughout the site proved to be a difficult task, due to the large amounts of impervious surfaces and lack of green space on the property.
The property owner decided to install an extensive green roof system to manage stormwater on the majority of the roof. Approximately 4,926 square feet of green roof material was installed that will capture an estimated 86,800 gallons of stormwater annually.
