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.
And to keep the city in the forefront of what is happening for the environment, Mayor Daley is promoting green, especially green roofs. And 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 Blyd.
Keep in mind, green roofs offer insulation, allowing for better heating and cooling hence less overall expense for your building. And it is a great feature for three flats and six flats that that will differentiate your property from others and probably help increase the value of your property.
