It aims to minimize energy requirements and to conserve water by including numerous engineering features into its master plan. The development will also include LEED and IGBC Platinum-rated structures. One of these structures, the recently opened residential development Godrej Origins is IGBC Platinum pre-certified.

The Trees, which is five times the size of London's Hyde Park, is included in a range of developing projects in Vikhroli aiming to modernize the city's infrastructure. These include the bridge from Nava Sheva to Sewri and the proposed new Vikhroli airport.
