Downtown Ann Arbor’s Federal Building in line for green upgrades

The feds are starting to green their buildings and one of the first to undergo these environmentally friendly updates is Ann Arbor’s Federal Building.

The downtown structure on Liberty between Fourth and Fifth streets will receive $2.4 million in improvements, including advanced water and electricity meters. A new green roof is also a possibility.

The money is coming from the Federal Stimulus bill and is being administered by the U.S. General Services Administration. $5.5 billion has been designated for federal buildings throughout the country.

Repeated calls to the agency over several days to find out further details were not returned.
