Under Armour Back to projects

The American sportswear company, Under Armour, established a New York City office
and showroom in 2013. The office is located on the west side of Chelsea in a 20 story
industrial building. The terrace wraps around the office space with a total length of 250
linear feet. Very close to the Hudson River and located on the 15th floor, the winds on this
terrace are extremely strong. We used native Switch Grass, Mexican Feather Grass and
Tanyosho Pines to bear the exposure of the site. The grasses sway and bend in the breeze
and provide winter interest. The planters were custom built using sustainable black locust
wood. This is the first phase of landscaping on the terrace. The second phase will be
installed during the summer of 2015.
