When you drive down the streets of Chicago you will quickly notice the plantings on Michigan Ave and many other streets. The city is certainly turning into a a beautiful and great place to live.
To keep the city in the forefront of going green with the environment, Mayor Daley is promoting green, especially green roofs. You can participate, and even possibly get a grant of up to $5,000, to do a garden roof. Check out the Center for Green Technology at 445 North Sacramento Blvd.
Keep in mind green roofs offer insulation, allowing for better heating and cooling, hence less overall expense for your building. It is a great feature for three and six flats that will differentiate your property from others and probably help increase the value of your property.
