Designed by 2008 Pritzker Prize laureate Jean Nouvel of France, 10000 Santa Monica Boulevard, nicknamed the "Green Blade," is a luxury condominium residence located in Century City on the edge of Beverly Hills. The 45-story tower has a distinctive, slender form and vast expanses of glass that give it a luminous, transparent appearance punctuated by expanses of verdant foliage. The building features innovative vertical landscaping, wrap-around balconies, and a private 40,000-square foot garden at the lobby level. This uniquely green project incorporates sustainable elements of design, construction and operation to qualify for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification from the US Green Building Council. The project was suspended in late 2008 in the midst of a troubled financing marketplace.
