The engineered design of Cira Green is the first project in the City to utilize innovative “blue roof” and “green roof” technologies for enhanced storm water performance; thus greatly reducing the development’s impact on the environment and surrounding public sewer systems. The “blue roof” systems lay under paved walking surfaces and provide the same hydrological performance as a fully planted roof.
