Building Use: Residential
Developer: The Continuum Company
Architect: Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates
Completion Date: 2016
The 65-story tower, located in Madison Square Park, has a sculptural glass silhouette that rises 770 feet in the sky. The exterior is a Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates design. The building features a stunning glass design that grows progressively wider as it rises and a top floor measuring 125 feet wide, allowing the penthouse to offer a 360-degree view of the Manhattan skyline. The tower’s height increases the residents’ living space and allows for over 10 feet of ceiling coverage, resulting in floor-to-ceiling glass walls and superb views. Remarkably, the building’s 75-foot-wide granite base was carved from the same stone used for the historic United States Custom House.
