World’s Tallest Vertical Garden Blooms In Sri Lanka


Stretching 50 floors high, Clearpoint Residencies near Colombo city will be the world’s tallest vertical garden when construction is completed in April 2016. It is also Sri Lanka’s first sustainable high rise. This Tallest Vertical Garden of the world is residential complex and will be used mainly for residence flats.



Building is covered in planted terraces and mango trees, giving the property its unique appearance. The planted exterior also works to reduce the heat level in the building, by lowering exposure to direct sunlight and providing fresher air.


The building is a joint project of Milroy Perera Associates and Mega Engineering. Leading property portal Lamudi recently signed with the developers to list Clearpoint Residences on its website. Properties ranging in size from two-bedroom apartments to a luxury penthouses are now listed online through Lamudi Sri Lanka.


A unique drip irrigation system will be installed during construction, eliminating the need to water the plants manually. The main source of water will be rain, making the system eco-friendly and sustainable in the long run. Recycled water from the building itself will also be use to supply the irrigation system. Moreover, the development includes 13,500 square feet of solar panels which will be used to power segments of the building such as the lobby lights and elevators.
