The energy to build, support, raise water and maintain something like that, wouldn't surprise me if it causes more pollution and waste outside of it'self that doesn't meet the eye.
Similar to something I wrote about lasagna gardening. Not identical, but similar in that activity in one area is related to costs, pollution and activity in another area.

Wrote that some years ago.
Certainly there will be cost - but I don't know why it should cause more pollution and waste beyond the structure. Think of the positive benefits. If I had to live in a concrete tower- having all that greenery would make it a bit more tolerable.
