52 Meters of Greenery. A Boost to the Local Ecosystem.
On the south-facing wall of the YANMAR FLYING-Y BUILDING, we have built a 52 meter high, 23.7 meter wide vertical green space, covering an area of 1,230 m². It contributes to the re-absorption of air pollutants, helps in the recovery of the local environment, and improves amenities for the building's users. The vegetation is bound in a non-woven fabric with a minimal amount of artificial soil and incorporated into the external louvers where it is fed with an automated irrigation system.
In addition, since March 2011 we have supported the NPO: “Umeda Honey Bee Project” through hives installed on the rooftop. These hives are set up amongst the rooftop gardens. By using local flowering plants for about 40% of the wall-greening project, we support the bees collection of nectar and promote harmony with the natural environment.
