This might just be the Holy Grail of ‘green’ multipurposing. They needed a water-filtration plant in the Bronx and, unfortunately, the most viable site was considered to be the Mosholu Golf Course, one of the last large-enough open spaces in the area.
Of course, Bronx golfers were instantly up in arms--which is one thing you really don’t want to deal with, especially since the facility also served a lot of underprivileged kids.
The solution? Make the driving range the green roof of the new plant. Result: Everybody’s happy. I think we’ve hit upon a great new twist in sustainable architecture and sports here.
