315 East 12th Street, #33 (CORE) 315 East 12th Street, #33 (CORE)
“Plant parenthood” has been popular among millennials for quite some time, and reached fever pitch during the lockdown to contain the coronavirus pandemic. However, some plant-lovers aren’t content with just a few pots on the windowsill. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, living green walls serve as natural insulation, both against sound and the elements. Environmental benefits include naturally cooling the air, cleaning the air of pollutants and dust, and removing harmful toxins. Add in the mental health benefits of the connection to nature, and it’s no wonder this feature is experiencing popularity.
Installing a green wall in one’s own apartment is perhaps a process best reserved for the most ambitious gardeners - one of them told The New York Times that “it’s like intensive care for plants” - but that is not to say it’s out of reach for apartment dwellers. As a growing number of developers appreciate green walls’ ability to help achieve LEED certification and increase interest and real estate value, pricey art in the lobby and/or amenity space is being edged out in favor of a truly more natural approach. For residents of the following buildings, the benefits of green walls are just an elevator ride away.
