What’s 22’ wide, hangs over midtown, weighs an actual ton, and is loved by one and all? It’s no easy feat dressing up a gigantic transit hub, much less an icon, a landmark, an architectural and engineering marvel in the heart of the busiest city in the world- We proudly present Grand Central Terminal’s absolutely enormous wreath, displayed about as prominently as it gets, and delivering holiday cheer to Midtown in dramatic fashion. No fewer than twelve individual frames support this gargantuan wreath, which clocks in at over 22’ in diameter. The oversize custom red bow is 13.5’ wide, adorned with twin 15’ tails. Our state-of-the-art control system acts as the brains of the wreath, directing a dazzling array of custom light displays. Adorned with over 7,400 lights, this wreath boasts over a mile of lights! Happy Holidays, NYC!
The Courtyard is 9900 SF. A central, rectilinear dry-bed leads through a random planting of large Shade trees, ferns and perennials and ends at a blackened steel water feature. The water spills into a reflecting pool that features a 12’ tall sandstone sculpture by Lluis Lleo. Two thirty foot built-in benches flank the deck that surrounds the end of the reflecting pool.
This 55ksf extensive green roof serves multiple functions. While the local environment benefits from a reduction of the heat island effect, minimized storm runoff and added protection to the roof membrane, this sedum green roof transforms a series of bare, unattractive spaces into a vibrant, lush amenity for the residents of this new development. The green roof is perhaps the most visible element of the suite of high end amenities and finishes envisioned by the developer, and emblematic of the continuing evolution of this historic neighborhood.
