Imagined by New York-based Work Architecture Company, Green Belt City will consist of three “super towers” with solar panels and integrated wind turbines that are surrounded by a series of private parks, a cultural center, and a spa. However, it’s the parking, yes, the parking, that’s the real green draw of the place. According to Work, the parking structure is a “re-conception of the code-required mass of parking as a 2.5-mile long public rooftop promenade. The site’s waste water is be filtered with a 'living machine' that doubles as a green screen for the parking structure.”
As far as I know, this particular vision of a green belt in the middle of gamble n' glitz land is not going forward but like everything in Vegas, it's nothing less than show-stopping. And certainly worth a look. Check out the renderings above and below as well as more at Work’s website.
