Bosco Verticale is a pair of residential towers in the Porta Nuova district of Milan, Italy, between Via Gaetano de Castillia and Via Federico Confalonieri near Milano Porta Garibaldi railway station. They have a height of 111m and 76m and will host more than 900 trees on 8900sqm of terraces. Within the complex is also an 11-story office building; its facade does not host plants.
The towers were designed by Boeri Studio . It also involved input from horticulturalists and botanists.
The building was inaugurated in October 2014.
The project was designed as part of the rehabilitation of the historic district of Milan between Via De Castillia and Confalonieri. It consists of two residential towers of which the largest is 26 floors and 110 meters high (called Torre E) and the smaller tower is 18 floors and 76 meters high (called Torre D). It contains 400 condominium units priced from 3,000–12,000 Euro per square metre
It is called Bosco Verticale because each tower houses trees between three and six meters which help mitigate smog and produce oxygen. It is also used to moderate temperatures in the building in the winter and summer. The plants also attenuate noise. The design was tested in a wind tunnel to ensure the trees would not topple from gusts of wind. Botanists and horticulturalists were consulted by the engineering team to ensure that the structure could bear the load imposed by the plants. The steel-reinforced concrete balconies are designed to be 28 cm thick, with 1.30 metre parapets.

  • Every now and then I return to this area, once not frequentable,then isolated for years because of the works that have upended the neighborhood, turning it into an area "in" and heart of business. Finally I can applaud the Architect Boeri for his genius, but also all the operators and financiers who have realized this "symbol of modern Milaneseness. The nearby Unicredit palace is also beautiful ... Finally I can say that, after the Pirellone and many years of scares,Milano has added a treat.
