Projects: Rooftops and Courtyards

The Embassy
Queens, New York


Kraus Enterprises selected RGR to prepare landscape design drawings for a 38-story luxury residential building. The landscape treatment includes a tenant garden and sitting area at the first floor level that is built entirely on the underground parking garage roof. The landscape design also includes a garden and perimeter walkway surrounding the building's health club at the third floor level.

Although the project occupies a relatively small urban site, the planted area is extensive, totaling nearly 23,000 sf in addition to the paved walkways and sitting areas. The planted spaces include a lush assortment of deciduous and evergreen trees, flowering trees and shrubs, ferns, and perennials. Such an assortment of vegetation provides a rich variety of textures, colors, and sizes to this compact urban landscape.
