The BGC’s Green+Screen project is beautifying Penn Avenue – sustainably.
The BGC’s Green+Screen program focuses on creating architectural screens and landscaping to beautify Penn Avenue. The projects use “green” materials that often include plants to “screen” the view of empty lots or parking lots. G+S projects continue or echo the façade of neighboring buildings or use median strips between sidewalk and paved lots.
In the program’s first three years, G+S installed six projects – at 4903, 5105, 5160, 5111, 5200, and 5416 Penn Avenue – and participated in a clean up of 4810, thanks to volunteers organized by the ecoDesigners Guild.
