The largest vertical garden in the world, with a 24-storey tower, is right here in Singapore. The 2,289 sq m garden that fronts the Tree House condominium in Bukit Timah has snagged a Guinness World Record.

The verdant facade also acts as natural insulation, filtering pollutants and cooling the apartments, developer City Developments Limited said.

The condominium also has heat-reducing laminated green-tinted windows and other green features. These are expected to result in savings of more than $500,000 annually.
