Consisting of nearly 40,000 philodendron plants, the 3,017 square foot GSky Green Wall is the second largest in North America. Four different Green Wall sections make up a double-sided, floor-to-ceiling “S” shape that spans two levels of the shopping complex. The Green Wall installation also features a sitting area, providing a refuge for shoppers to sit, eat from the nearby food court, and relax. Through the plant’s natural filtering system, it will provide shoppers as much clean air as 30 14-foot tall trees. Multiple doorway entries are included in the wall’s design so people can enjoy both sides.
Because of the Green Wall and other green features, The CORE is currently pursuing certification for LEED-Commercial Interiors (LEED-CI).
