Abstract

The purpose of this project was to determine the impact of green rooftops on an urban development, specifically Fan Pier, Boston. This information was used to predict the influence green roofs could have on the development and its surrounding environment. Storm water management, increased air quality, and increased aesthetic appeal are the major advantages that green roofs can provide Fan Pier. This project is meant to help motivate Boston to develop research and make changes to mitigate environmental issues.
