Delray Beach, FL. – (March 12, 2019) – GSky Plant Systems, Inc., a global industry leader in the design and production of interior and exterior green walls, announces installation of a custom Pro Wall® living wall system at the new iPic Entertainment corporate headquarters and theater in Delray Beach, Florida. Pro Wall® systems are ideal for corporate campuses, hotels, malls, retail storefronts, apartment and condominium buildings, and more.
