This two-story living wall is the largest public green wall in New York City. Spanning 70 feet long and 24 feet high, the wall displays close to 10,000 plants. It features 11 different varieties of tropical plants and is supported by a custom irrigation system. A unique aspect of this wall is that it continues to the floor behind a partially transparent display, promoting the sensation of the display products hovering in the greenery.
