Just got word that there’s another green roof in Chicago! In a city known for green roofs, Apple Computer’s Michigan Avenue retail store further establishes Chicago as one of the more eco-progressive cities in the U.S. This Apple store has 302 four inch GreenGrid® modules. Sedum kamtschaticum, a perennial succulent groundcover, was the plant of choice for their green roof. If you’d like to find out more about green roof technology, check out this article on the EarthToys website.

MacDailyNews has a complete article about Apple’s green roof.
