LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U of L is setting a good environmental example as it dedicates the first new building at its research park.
Officials unveiled a model of the green roof that will top the building during a ceremony today at Nucleus Innovation Park on Market Street.
It will feature plants native to Kentucky.
Bernheim Forest nursery specialists are advising building contractors how to design and maintain it.
Officials say this building will attract more jobs, research and innovation.
"The University has been given a research mission," U of L President James Ramsey. "We're doing things no other research universities are doing, so it's a great opportunity for this community. It's where we can be world class, best in class anywhere in the U.S. or internationally. What this will do is give us the space so our researchers can take their ideas and be successful in taking those ideas to the marketplace."
