Vertical Forest realized a new vision for biodiversity, urban reforestation, and green design, setting a new standard for residential construction worldwide. The two buildings were the first examples of Vertical Forests, reaching heights of more than 350 feet and hosting 800 trees, 4,500 shrubs and 15,000 plants distributed according to the sun exposure of each location on the facade. Planted using a volcanic soil medium on top of balconies and rooftops, the Vertical Forest incorporates 215,000 SF of plants into a tiny vertical footprint. Building occupants enjoy beautiful views, cleaner air (more oxygen, less CO2, less dust) and a milder climate year-round thanks to the forest that enwraps the building.
