PALM BEACH – WORTH AVENUE

PALM BEACH – WORTH AVENUE

Palm Beach’s downtown shopping district, Worth Avenue, underwent a large-scale Beautification Project in 2010 to restore its charm and attract shoppers. As the centerpiece of the renovation, a cascading, curvilinear 840 square foot GSky green wall was installed as a large piece of living public art and as a tribute to Palm Beach’s garden heritage. The green wall and town landmark is located on the west exterior wall of Saks Fifth Avenue for shoppers, visitors and residents to enjoy. The wall features over 10,920 plants, some native, in different textures and shades of green. It is the first of its kind in Palm Beach County.

 

“People are always stopping in wonder of it. Most don’t believe it’s real. We see weddings taking photos in front of it all the time. It’s been great for business.”
