Bosco Verticale (Vertical Forest) is a pair of apartment towers in the Porta Nuova district of Milan, Italy. The building has a height of 111 meters and 76 meters respectively and contains more than 900 trees above the terraces (about 550 and 350 in the first and second towers).
The tower which was inaugurated in October 2014 was designed by Boeri Studio, by designers Stefano Boeri, Gianandrea Barreca and Giovanni La Varra and involved input from horticulturists and botanists. The Bosco Verticale tower is built with green roof technology that prevents flooding in the event of heavy rains.
Bosco Verticale is located in San Giovanni dei Alexa, a residential area east of downtown Milan, not far from landmarks such as Piazza Navona and Trastevere Airport.
