Rafael Viñoly to Add World’s Largest Green Roof to Former Shopping Mall in California

Rafael Viñoly and OLIN have unveiled plans to transform Cupertino‘s Vallco Shopping Mall into a new mixed-use neighborhood that boasts the “world’s largest green roof.” The current plans call for a 15-block sustainable town center with 625,000-square-feet of retail, two-million-square-feet of office space and 800 residential units. All this, if approved, would be topped by a 30 acre public green space with a 3.8 mile trail network that runs through orchards, vineyards, an amphitheater and play areas.

“The Hills at Vallco,” as it has been named, will undergo community outreach over the next eight months, BizJournals reports. It is expected to achieve LEED Platinum upon completion.
