1899 McKinney


Location: Dallas.

1899 McKinney’s living wall will improve local air quality with more than 40,000 plants estimated to capture in excess of 1,600 pounds of carbon dioxide and annually produce 1,200 pounds of oxygen.  
Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Rastegar designed the brilliant exterior of the condominium tower to resemble a tree trunk, with its curvature and metal spokes reminiscent of branches. A living wall, which they had seen in projects in Europe and Asia, seemed the perfect complement.
