Wonderwoods has achieved significant milestones in its construction progress. The first tree has been planted on the building and the office tower has reached its highest point. Wonderwoods will feature 280 trees and 75,000 plants both inside and outside the building. The construction began in December 2020 and is expected to be completed by 2024.
First tree planted on the green towers
The preparations for this unique project have been underway for years, and the trees and plants have been carefully cultivated. The first of many trees, a four-meter currant tree, was planted last month. The greenery in and around the buildings is inspired by that of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park. Only native species are being planted and the entire tower has a diversity that matches that of a hectare of forest.
In addition to about 4000 planters and 150 large tree planters on the facades of the tallest tower, all roofs are green roofs with a water retention function. The green roofs are able to retain rainwater and later, through a fully automatic system, the water can be reused for all the greenery.
