Project Description:

Carnegie Hall’s Weill Terrace 10,000 square ft. green rooftop, adjacent to the Weill Terrace Room and the new Resnick Education Wing, was built ten stories in the air and includes an abundance of maple, redbud, and linden trees and 7,000 square feet of grass, pavers and sod. An elaborate irrigation system and stunning landscape lighting was included throughout.

Project Scope:

The project included 10,000-square-feet of green roof which includes a public terrace, trees measuring up to 35’ in height, extensive masonry plantings and seating.

Of Note:

The new Weill Terrace is a feature that was first envisioned by the building’s original architect, Willilam Burnet Tuthill in 1892.  Adjacent to it are the Weill Terrace Room and the new Resnick Education Wing.

The terrace has become the perfect gathering place for Carnegie Hall concertgoers, performers, teachers, students, and staff members.

“We are very proud to be part of this historic building’s transformation. Carnegie Hall is one of New York City’s landmark venues and Sponzilli Landscape Group feels privileged to be involved this project”.
