jean nouvel in L.A.
Jean Nouvel has unveiled plans for a 45-story, 117 unit condominium for Los Angeles. Being dubbed the “Green Blade”, the tower will have plenty of vegetation. Every unit will be surrounded by foliage and there will be a 40,000 sq. ft. private garden at the base of the building.
It is a beautiful building. And I completely agree with the concept. But this is not a cheap tower. The units START at approx. 3,400 sq. ft.! Yep, not small. And the prices range from $3.2 million to $30 million. And remember that 40,000sq ft. garden…nice gesture but it’s private. It seems as though only the uber-rich are to enjoy nature these days.
