384ft tower to be first evergreen building
The 36-story green tower, aptly named "La Tour des Cedres" (The Tower of Cedars), will be home to more than 100 trees, 6,000 shrubs and 18,000 plants spread over roughly 3,000 square meters of green space. The plants will protect the apartments inside from harsh winds, dust, and noise pollution, and will offer a more pleasant view of the city.
This tower will be the second project of its kind by Boeri. He previously designed two 112m towers in Milan as well.
