About the project

One Central Park's living walls is the largest green façade ever undertaken on a residential tower in Australia.
French botanist Patrick Blanc is an international superstar when it comes to vertical gardens, and his creation at One Central Park is one of the reasons why.

Designed on the concept of fluidity, his living walls stand up to 42m tall and are a magnificent arrangement of planter grown vines and cascading plants. Together, they represent Patrick’s largest ever project as well as the largest green façade ever undertaken on a residential tower in Australia.

Alive with colour, texture and shape, the green space provides a soft and inviting atmosphere that sets the scene for this new development. Made up of 24 panels of various sizes - Le Mur Vegetal - covers 1,200m² of the two towers' façades, up to 110m high spanning from level 2 to 33.

There are 2,700 planter boxes ranging in size from 60 to 200cm, stretching more than 7 linear kilometres around the cutting edge structure.

Irrigated with 'blackwater', populated by native species and designed for minimum maintenance, this green space is more than a global benchmark of sustainable green design, it's a work of art which nature would surely be proud of.
