Starting September 22, fall will officially be here, and Washington, D.C.’s CityCenterDC development not only knows this, but wants to flaunt it as well.

In a brand new art installation, titled, “Autumn Forest,” the project’s Palmer Alley now features thousands of autumn leaves suspended above the main retail transverse in a horizontal canopy. The installation features a total of 5,975 branches and approximately 269,000 fall leaves.

According to a press release published by PoPville, local design firm Silver Lining Design Group is behind the autumnal installation. This firm has also designed for the National Building Museum, The St. Regis, and The Longview Gallery.

In a statement, CityCenterDC General Manager Timothy Lowery said, “We love to see visitors interacting with this public space and photographing the installations, which create an experience like no other in Washington, D.C.”

This is the fourth time Palmer Alley has had a large-scale overhead decorative installation. The previous installations included City in Bloom, Dream Closet, and Summer Beach Ball. Below, check out a few photos of past installations at CityCenterDC.
