ESRI Canada, which provides geographic information systems to organizations, transformed a large paved terrace at its rented office into a rooftop garden. Inspired by a study showing that green roofs reduce urban heat, ESRI partnered with its landlord to create their urban oasis. In addition to improving air quality and reducing energy consumption, ESRI created an additional 7,500 square feet of useable space which is enjoyed by tenants and the surrounding community.
