About the event
The Northeastern U.S. is predicted to experience increases in extreme precipitation, extreme heat and coastal flooding due to sea level rise and storm surge. With its emphasis on ecosystem enhancement and green infrastructure, LG’s new headquarters will prove resilient to these natural hazards exacerbated by climate change.
Tour this new ‘groundscraper’ design preserved in the natural viewshed of the Palisades—a line of steel cliffs along the west side of the Hudson River—from New York, the Palisades Parkway, Palisades Intestate Park and the George Washington Bridge.
Setting the building height below the top of the tree canopy also prevents it from interfering with a significant migratory bird path along the river. In areas where green roofs or site vegetation are close to glazing, the building has bird-deterrent glass.
A landscape berm and restored woodlands on the site’s southern edge provide a buffer between the headquarters and an adjacent residential neighborhood.
The design enhances the local ecosystem by protecting six surrounding wetlands and restoring three native woodlands, as well as several natural wildlife habitats.
The forest restoration program included adding more than 1,500 mostly mature trees. The design also added 50 percent more green space to the site. The project reduced the site’s impervious area by nearly 35 percent.
Outside, combining low-maintenance native vegetation with high-tech controllers, drip delivery and moisture sensors reduced use of potable water for irrigation by 96 percent.
