The Living Roof

One South Van Ness

The 9,500-square-foot living roof at One South Van Ness percolates storm water, reduces peak runoff,  reduces cooling loads and energy use within the building, provides a suitable habitat for butterflies & honey bees, and a beautiful park-like view from neighboring buildings.  The plants on the living roof include a variety of California native and adopted plants.  More here.
