Station Mall Going Green

Thursday, July 26, 2012

by Andrew Yanders

Along the banks of the St. Laurence River in Sault Ste. Marie, ON sits the Station Mall.  The expansive 42 acre plot dominates the town's waterfront.  When viewed from above the entire property is an island of asphalt and rubber roofing.  This impervious area creates an incredible 28 million gallons of stormwater runoff each year, equivalent to 42 Olympic swimming pools.  Last month Jorg and Andrew traveled to Ontario to meet with an executive team from the Mall and discuss ways to improve the environmental performance the property.  Green Roof Technology is proud to report they have signed a contract with the Station Mall to create a 'Greening Master Plan' for the Station Mall.  Designs are under way, so stayed tuned for updates, but in the mean time enjoy some photos of our most recent trip to beautiful Sault Ste. Marie.

A new boardwalk provides pedestrians an enjoyable passage from the town center to the historical Sault Ste. Marie Canal and beyond to the Whitefish Island natural preserve.
