Opening of ESRI Canada’s Green Roof

Scott Torrance Landscape Architect Inc. celebrated the official opening of ESRI Canada’s green roof of the company’s Toronto office – having turned a 704-square metre paved terrace on the 9th floor into useable green space and an urban oasis that will help mitigate urban heat effect and provide additional habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife.

Even Toronto Mayor, David Miller, was supportive saying, “We commend companies such as ESRI Canada for its important contribution and continued focus on environmental sustainability. With the addition of this new green roof, we have taken another step in making Toronto a healthy and liveable city.”
