Will the 1 Hotel Central Park Have Grass Growing Out of It?

We did say we knew better when we had a first look at the new The 1 Hotel Central Park on 58th and Sixth Avenue last month: that projected fall construction finishing date was just a wee bit optimistic.

We stopped by the other day to check on progress and the site has a new rendering up and an updated estimated completion date of spring 2014.

1 Hotels are known for their eco-friendliness, and the Central Park property will have the brand's signature organic bed sheets, fresh ingredients, and sounds and smells of nature. As such, the construction site is plastered with appropriately leafy banners to evoke the general "good feeling" of staying at one of the brand's properties; but what's up with that grassy facade on the rendering?
