PECO Green Roof Tours

A not-so-secret garden blooms atop the eighth floor of the PECO Energy building in Philadelphia. Cultivated in partnership with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, this 45,000-square-foot space boasts more than two dozen species of plants and grasses, making it the region’s largest such green roof. The sweeping skyline views and innovative construction methods attract locals and visitors for monthly tours offered between April and October.
