The upper blocks of the 498-meter cantilevered skyscraper are larger than the lower blocks.
The City of New York has put out a tender for the development of an area of almost 5,000 square meters. Among the contenders was the Ghanaian-British architect, David Adjaye’s studio, Adjaye Associates, with real estate developer Peebles Corporation, who together submitted a concept for an inverted skyscraper. The unusual building would also house two hotels, offices, an ice rink and a lookout point. If built, it will be the second tallest building in Manhattan after One World Trade Center.
