The world’s largest green roof, with an orchard and a vineyard, is planned for Silicon Valley

Typically when you hear about new developments regarding housing or commercial, it is terms of maximum number of units or the highest profit. That doesn't seem to be the case with the the recent purchase of the failed Vallco Mall. Sand Hill, the Silicon Valley Real Estate Company who picked up the 50-acre property, has very ambitious plans to change the landscape (literally) of large future builds. This project will feature an orchard, vineyard, 3.8 miles of walking trails and a 30-acre rooftop park. I can't wait to see this as a common practice for builders, and think that it is about time we started seeing this kind of vision for Silicon Valley.
