LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The University of Louisville's new business school wing includes a first-of-its-kind feature at UofL: a "green" roof containing living plants to save energy.

The new wing of UofL's College of Business was dedicated Tuesday morning on the west side of Harry Frazier Hall.

The $3.4 million addition will house the school's entrepreneurship and equine industry programs.
