The Kresge Foundation Headquarters in Troy

The Kresge Headquarters in Troy has been certified green by LEEDS. They have incorporated into their master plan, the 1852 farmhouse that sits on their property and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The blend of the old with the new is startling.  Planted all around two wetland areas are grasses and flowers native to our state that are drought resistant and need no watering. It's a beautiful site to behold with a butterfly garden, abundant wildlife and a green roof--all on 3 acres of land at Big Beaver and Coolidge. We learned about it through Troy's Annual Garden Walk last week which featured the Kresge HQ as one of their 9 gardens to view.
