Highview Creations installed multiple green roofs at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House in 2013, with partial funding by the NYC DEP Green Infrastructure Program.  Two extensive green roofs were installed on the 6th floor roofs, and an intensive and agricultural green roof was installed on the third floor roof.  The agricultural green roof is used for educational programming, and food grown on the roof is used in the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House kitchen.

Additionally, Highview Creations designed and installed a second floor"playscape" green roof in 2016, which was awarded the "Good Stewardship Award" by the Friends of the Upper East Side Organization.  The recreational roof space includes several programs including a native sensory garden, reading nest, water-wall, and other interactive features that help to develop creativity, physical confidence, and interaction for the children who utilize the space.
