Gallery: Hanging Gardens Split Open BIG’s Marina Lofts Development Alon...

    THE Developer will Not alter his Plans to incorporate or include the tree in his plans for building another condominium. He will not entertain that the RAIN TREE be included as a valulable, viable, beautiful and life giving PART of his whole plan! And the Rain Tree is a Treasure. If he leaves the Rain Tree where it is with his Current plans the Rain Tree will have too much Shade, its enormous beautiful crown must have sunlight, and this will mostly likely result in the death of the Rain Tree. Unthinkable. This IS NOT GREEN Design.PLease let Asi Cymbal know what a Green Design is! I know someone could school him or win him over on Green Design. <3

    Good idea of providing greenery.More plants may be grown if terraces and varandas if provided in the condos.
