As part of new renovations at Boston Logan’s Terminal E food court, you’ll now be able to spot a bit of green.
No, not Kermit the Frog, but some vegetation. There are now four, five-foot-tall installations of living walls – that is, plants that grow out of plant holders that hang on the wall.
Living walls have been around for several years, but they’re all the rage these days. I’ve spotted them in the past couple of months at Organic Avenue’s flagship healthy food and juice shop in New York near Bryant Park, and at Bizou Brasserie at the recently opened Le Meridien hotel in downtown Tampa. They’re becoming popular in commercial spaces as they’re believed to help reduce people’s stress levels, and they also add a touch of the outdoors – something that the Millennial generation is known to crave.
Renovations in the food court area include new chairs, table tops, wall coverings and paint, according to AIRMALL, which operates the space. The food court – located beyond security – has concessions such as Starbucks, Vino Volo, Burger King and Sbarro.
