To preserve the essence of the site, the redevelopment included two courtyards, with one specifically designed to protect one of these grand oaks. After careful analysis, the City chose one tree to be transplanted, resulting in the construction of the apartment around it. Additionally, numerous trees were transplanted off-site and returned once the construction was finished.
Although facing challenges in its new location, the relocated grand tree received support through the addition of grow lights attached to the building. Today, this tree thrives, serving as a testament to the success of Altis Grand Central’s vision.
