New designs for SuperPier shipping container mall’s 13,339-square-foot rooftop park revealed https://t.co/q3BN9XxGhO

The plan calls for three different plants—Fallopia, Clematis and Hydrangea—which were selected strategically because they bloom at different times of year, so the colors and appearance of the park will change through the seasons. In the absence of shade trees, large sail-like shades controlled by park officials will shelter parkgoers from the sun, while other mini-shades will allow visitors to take a load off at cool, covered spots at one of 60 concrete seating structures. Creating a movable, customizable design is what helped RXR Reality subvert the restrictions related to shade structures.
