Flying Trees Over Comic-Con International at San Diego Convention Center?

Anyone see the trees flying over downtown San Diego during Comic-Con International at the San Diego Convention Center. They were not part of the action, they are for the “Greening” of the 11 story TRELLIS CONDO’S on 5th Avenue in downtown San Diego. As seen in the photos, trees were being lifted by a massive crane to reach their final destination in the podium level courtyard. ARCHLAND designed the landscape architectural renovation for Nautilus General Contractors.

Too large to fit in the elevator, the trees for the renovation appear to be flying above the San Diego Convention Center, bay-front hotels and high-rises. The new landscape architectural design includes hard-scape and soft-scape enhancements to the interior courtyards. The intricate paving materials are patterned using colored concrete with various aggregates and textured finishes. The new architectural planters and pots include built-in irrigation watering systems that regulate the amount of water being applied. In addition, “green screens” are included as part of the design and will be planted with flowering vines. They will provide privacy to the tenants while enhancing the social public spaces. Additional accents plants will be planted in the linear planters to complement this “GREEN ROOF TOP OASIS” in the Gaslamp District.
