Today TPCDC and our partners celebrated the construction of a green roof at 4020 Market Street, the first green roof on the Market Street Commercial Corridor.
Are you interested in receiving updates on the green roof program? Please visit our office during regular hours (M-F, 9am-5pm) or call 215-662-1612. We hope to have an electronic sign-up set up very soon, and will post the details here on the blog.
At the kickoff, TPCDC Executive Director Steven Williams, Corey Suter of BioNeighbors Sustainable Homes LLC, and representatives from the Mayor’s Office for the Re-entry of Ex-Offenders spoke to the attributes of this pilot program, which include:
– Addressing the health hazards of overheated homes
– Providing opportunities for recently released ex-offenders to train for sustainable jobs and earn living wages
– Promoting further “green” development in West Philadelphia
