Work is now underway on Tadao Ando’s first NYC project at 152 Elizabeth Street with the foundation work complete and the superstructure set to rise in the coming weeks. And with that, the developers have unveiled new renderings for the massive green wall that will envelop the entire south facade of the building when the project is complete.
Designed by Ando in collaboration with landscape architecture firm, M. Paul Friedberg and Partners, the green wall will measure 55-feet-high and 99-feet-wide when it is complete, making it the largest residential green wall in the city. The wall will be comprised of a mix of vines including English Ivy, Boston Ivy, Virginia Creepers, Jasmine Clematis and climbing Hydrangeas.
The seven-story building features a total of seven residences with prices ranging from $5.75 million for a half-floor unit to full-floor apartments that start at $14.8 million. One of those full-floor apartments went into contract for $15.2 million last year, breaking the record for a non-penthouse sale in the neighborhood. Ando is collaborating with Gabellini Sheppard Associates on the interiors of the building.
