Press Release 2015

FM Home Improvement is featured in a FM Link facility management trade publication "LiveRoof green roofs enhance school, hospital, condos" (October 15, 2015)

Condo community in Weehawken, New Jersey

On September 28, contractors began installation of a planted roof atop 1200 Avenue at Port Imperial. The 103-unit, seven-story building is part of the $2 billion master-planned Port Imperial South Community, located along the Hudson River in Weehawken, New Jersey. Lennar, also owners of the previously opened 1000 Avenue at Port Imperial (which also features a LiveRoof green roof), installed their second green roof as construction nears completion at the second of four condominium buildings planned at The Avenue Collection.



The newest community offers skyline views for 75 percent of the building. In addition to a host of social and health amenities, a third-floor outdoor plaza will feature an open lawn, planting areas, seating, fire pit, sundeck and pool. Contractors installed a 21,600-square-foot LiveRoof brand system, which features a patterned mix of red and gold low-growing sedums. Ornamental grasses were also used to block the view of rooftop mechanical equipment from adjacent windows and seating areas. Besides the aesthetic, environmental, financial and social benefits, the rooftop garden provides important stormwater management as required by local legislation.



Lennar contracted with several organizations to complete the vegetative roof project including Belle Associates (general contractor), Handel Architects, Melillo & Bauer (landscape architects) and FM Improvements, who installed the planted roof. Using locally sourced plants and soil, the custom-grown green roof for 1200 Avenue was cultivated approximately 150 miles from Weehawken by LiveRoof-licensed grower Creek Hill Nursery of Leola, Pennsylvania.
