GREENSTREET GREENWALLS DESIGNS & INSTALLS SECOND LARGEST AIR-PURIFYING GREENWALL IN THE COUNTRY

greenwall

Lothian, MD (May 16, 2017) Greenstreet GreenWalls, a division of Greenstreet Growers, designs and installs the second largest active living green wall in the country.

It is a total of 780 sq. ft. and measures 66 feet wide and from 5 feet 4 inches high at its lowest point and 19 feet high at its highest point. This green wall is not only aesthetically pleasing but it purifies the air 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The Towers are owned and operated by Monday Properties, a leading national real estate investment firm, which is where the green wall is located. “Monday Properties has a proud history of setting the bar in the industry when it comes to improving the lifestyle and comfort of our tenants,” said Tim Helmig, a Managing Partner at Monday Properties. “Implementing innovative and original solutions to elevate the tenant experience has allowed Monday’s buildings to stay ahead of the curve. In this instance, the green wall is a perfect complement to our ongoing commitment to sustainable design with our LEED Gold certification.”

Ray Greenstreet, owner of Greenstreet GreenWalls said “A living wall brings nature inside for a cleaner, healthier and more welcoming space. Green walls are the green way to purify indoor air.”

The Greenstreet GreenWall uses AgroSci’s U.S. patented Aerogation™ system, which magnifies the natural cleaning power of plants 200 times more than any system not using Aerogation™ technology. Aerogation™ works by drawing air into the plants’ root zone where a natural process called phytoremediation turns impurities into fresh oxygen. AgroSci CEO Chris Pianta said, “We greatly appreciate Monday Properties’ decision to choose our product. Our unique Aerogation™ technology will naturally cleanse toxins, impurities and allergens from the building’s air without filters or sequestration.”

The proprietary technology, unique to the industry, gives Wilson Blvd’s 2,663-plant green wall the air-purifying capacity of 888 cu. ft. of air per minute, 53,260 cu. ft. of air per hour, and 1,278,240 cu. ft. of air per day.

Other green walls completed by Greenstreet GreenWalls include the Gunther & Co. restaurant in Baltimore, MD, Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, MD, CR Goodman Associates in Annapolis, MD, Quarry Springs Condominiums in Potomac, MD, and the Perkins Eastman D.C. offices at Thomas Circle.

AgroSci Green Walls, in partnership with its Mid-Atlantic distributor Greenstreet GreenWalls, installed a state of art air-purifying living wall inside the newly opened Gunther & Co. restaurant in Baltimore, Md.

 

“We are excited to bring our cutting edge air-purifying green wall to Gunther & Co.,” AgroSci CEO Chris Pianta said. “AgroSci’s green wall not only looks fantastic, it purifies air 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our walls are the green alternative to complicated, expensive and energy-hungry air filtration systems.”

 

The green wall uses AgroSci’s patent-pending Aerogation™ system, which magnifies the natural cleaning power of plants 200 times. Aerogation™ works by drawing air into the plants’ roots where a natural process called phytoremediation turns impurities into fresh oxygen.

 

The proprietary technology, unique to the industry, gives Gunther Co.’s 540-plant green wall the air-purifying capacity of 108,000 houseplants.

 

“It’s like having a forest in a restaurant,” AgroSci President Mark Prescott said. “Our walls use a natural process to break down impurities and produce fresh air so there are no filters or ducts. Thanks to our wall, Gunther & Co.’s staff and customers can breath easy.”

 

Ray Greenstreet, owner of Greenstreet GreenWalls said “A living wall brings nature inside for a cleaner, healthier and more welcoming space. Green walls are the green way to purify indoor air.”

 

The approximately nine-by-six foot green wall overlooks the main dining room. A sophisticated computerized watering system minimizes water and electricity use.

 

Gunther & Co. is located in an old brewery in Baltimore’s Brewers Hill neighborhood. It features a wood-burning oven, craft beers, an oyster bar and live music.

WASHINGTON — Monday Properties’ 1000 Wilson Blvd., in Rosslyn, is now home to the second-largest active green wall in the U.S.

Lothian, Maryland-based Greenstreet Green Walls was commissioned by Monday Properties for the wall. Greenstreet worked with Fox Architects and AgroSci to design and install it.

The 780-square-foot wall — 66 feet wide, with a height that varies from about five feet to 19 feet — is more than just plants stuck in pots on a wall. The active green wall system recirculates air, water and nutrients to the plants’ root zone at a rate that forces the plants to actively perform their natural processes continuously.

“A living wall brings nature inside for a cleaner, healthier and more welcoming space, and green walls are the green way to purify indoor air,” said Greenstreet Green Walls owner Ray Greenstreet.

“Implementing innovative and original solutions to elevate the tenant experience has allowed Monday’s buildings to stay ahead of the curve. In this instance, the green wall is a perfect complement to our ongoing commitment to sustainable design with our LEED Gold certification,” said Monday Properties managing partner Tim Helmig.

The largest active green wall in the U.S. was installed at Drexel University six years ago, in the lobby of the Philadelphia school’s Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building. The five-story wall is about 20 feet wide and totals 1,500 square feet. Read Full Story

Not your average wall planter: Anne Arundel businesses partner to sell green walls

Chuck Goodman said his architecture firm is always looking for the latest developments in the industry to offer clients.

The most recent: a wall of plants.

“They’re beautiful,” he said. “It’s going to be right when you come into the door. We think it makes a statement to what we’re committed to in sustainable design.”

The CR Goodman Associates founder said the green wall will be installed in the firm’s Annapolis office in about a month. And the wall won’t be just an aesthetic statement — it will also filter air.

The company was the primary architect for Anne Arundel Medical Center for the last 20 years, using Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design.

Cindy Shuart, owner of Harmony Gardens in Annapolis, said the interior green walls improve air quality, reduce noise, regulate temperature, save energy and qualify for LEED credits.

“I feel like it’s the natural progression of where indoor plants should be moving to,” Shuart said. “We’re getting them off the floor and we’re putting them on the wall.”

Ray Greenstreet, of Greenstreet Growers in Lothian, approached Shuart at the beginning of the year with the idea and the two businesses partnered to sell them locally, she said. Greenstreet and Shuart are horticulturists in the interior plant-scaping industry, which puts plants in office buildings and malls, she said. Read Full Article

 



Gunther & Co. in Brewers Hill offers more dining options than you knew you needed

Whether you are going to dinner with your significant other, grabbing a drink with colleagues after work or gathering a dozen of your closest friends, Gunther & Co. has you covered.

Set up in the former Gunther Brewing Co. boiler room and surrounding space in Brewers Hill, Gunther & Co. is bigger than you may think. Even after walking into a decent size room that includes a handful of tables for lunch and a bar with about 14 beers on tap, there is more to see. Walk past the bar and you enter the heart of the restaurant with tall ceilings and a large living wall accenting the main dinning room, complete with the kitchen, a mezzanine and a private dining room.

And that doesn’t include the outdoor patio, which completes the more than 7,000-square-foot space. With 200 seats inside and another 70 outside, owners Nancy Hart Mola and Jerry Trice want everyone to find their place in their new restaurant when it opens in two weeks.

“We developed the concept to be a neighborhood restaurant as well as the destination event restaurant,” Mola said. “You can have happy hour at the bar, a corporate affair in the mezzanine or a chef’s tasting menu in the lair with your 10 best friends.” Read Full Article



 

Gunther & Co. Set to Open in Brewers Hill This Spring

The restaurant will set up shop in historic Gunther Brewing building.

Joining the likes of La Cuchara and the yet-to-open Cosima, both situated on historically industrial city properties, is Gunther & Co.—a new modern American concept set to take over the century-old boiler room of Gunther Brewing Company in Brewers Hill.

Slated to debut in March, the brainchild of former D.C. area restaurateurs Jerry Trice and Nancy Hart Mola will serve American cuisine with global influences and make use of the building’s vintage charm in its design.

“The real motivation for us was the space itself,” Trice says. “It has so much character and we thought it would make a great canvas. The worst part, that it was a cold and dark shell, was also the best part because it gave us the chance to design using our own aesthetic style to match the industrial, rugged interior.”

Seating upwards of 200 guests, the 7,000-square-foot space encompasses a front bar and den, a 150-seat main dining room, a mezzanine level with floor-to-ceiling factory windows, a glass-enclosed private dining room, an outdoor bar and patio, and an open kitchen complete with a wood-burning oven.
