Stay on top of the Greenroof & Greenwall World by subscribing here: Located atop Broadway Stages in a highly industrial area in north Brooklyn, Kingsland Wildflowers is a Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund project committed to expanding natural habitat and green corridors for bird and wildlife populations. Green roof designer Marni Majorelle, founder of Alive Structures, brought together local businesses and non-profit organizations to create the Kingsland Wildflowers Green Roof & Community Space. It had its grand opening in September 2016, and by August 2017 the building also included a second sedum roof. The green roof oasis acts as a natural habitat – a habitat expansion program – to foster local bird and wildlife populations. Plants were specifically selected to attract these species with native grasses and herbaceous perennials native to New York. The rooftop wildflower meadow is supported by ultralite growing media, the rooflite semi-intensive 500 series. The Kingsland Wildflowers Greenroof & Community Space offers enrichment activities for the neighborhood, including eco-festivals, wine and beer tastings, bird surveys, native plant walk tours, author lectures, and an outdoor classroom for local schools and the general public. The project is a great example of a creative partnership, an inspiring vision, and an urban transformation for the benefit of the community. With the Kingsland Wildflowers Greenroof & Community Space, Greenpoint can now enjoy a green corridor habitat of native grasses and flowers for New York City’s bird, bat, and pollinator populations.
