The First City Owned Green Roof in Georgia.

Atlanta GA - Since 2003, the patio outside Atlanta City Hall’s fifth floor cafeteria has been home to the first city-owned green roof in the Southeast.

Some facts about the green roof

227,770 pounds of material added
Over 2,800 plants used, 31 Species used

The green roof is actually open to employees and the public during the hours of (9 a.m. – 3 p.m.)

I strongly encourage you to visit the green roof at City Hall. It is truly a one of a kind southern landmark that is worth visiting.
