Toronto just got a giant vertical garden
Still in seedling phase, the living wall gracing the back of the near-complete Bathurst College Centre is Toronto's first vertical garden to grace an outdoor facade of this size.
Sectioned off in a series of perforated metal sheets, the plants don't extend as high as the building's four storeys.
It does run along the entire back portion of the 146,627 square-foot retail project, making for what will (hopefully) be a greened-out nature walk down College Place, the laneway behind the homes on Markham Street.
It'll also be a nice reprieve for employees and shoppers of the soon-to-be Winners, Basil Box, Colaba Junction, a massive FreshCo supermarket, as well as the University Health Network offices on the third floor.
You can check out the budding garden by heading behind the centre at 410-444 Bathurst Street.
