When I say a skyscraper is green, I generally mean that it uses less energy, generates some of its own power, and uses water efficiently. But the 27-story Antilla tower being planned for Mumbai is actually green. Several of the building's exterior walls will be covered in vegetation and the skyscraper itself will contain several parks!
The tower itself is high enough to be a 60-story building, but several of the levels are extremely high, including one that looks to have full-sized trees on it. However, aside from containing and being covered by plants, we're not sure that this building is actually going to be green in the less literal sense.
