Construction on a new 90,000-square-foot Walmart in North Portland has begun. The store will have a 40,600-square-foot green roof.

“It’s going to be the biggest green roof in the state,” said Rachel Wall, senior manager of community affairs for Wal-Mart. “We’re proud to incorporate (it) as we continue to strive to create a more sustainable world.”
