Stefano Boeri Architetti, architects of the Bosco Verticale towers in Milan, won a competition to design a tower in the Utrecht city center, to be called 'Hawthrone Tower.'

The 90-meter-tall tower will be covered by 10,000 plants of different species (360 trees, 9,640 of shrubs and flowers), aimed at creating “an innovative experience of cohabitation between city and nature.” The green facade will allow Hawthorne Tower to absorb more than 5.4 tons of CO2, scrubbing the air for healthier living conditions for both residents of the tower and the wider city.

Construction on Hawthorne Tower will begin in 2019, with estimated completion by 2022.
