ODA architecture proposes an ultra-slender Tower in NYC

The current trend towards ultra-slender residential towers in Manhattan reflects a seismic shift of global wealth towards the private sector. Traditionally, New York City’s skyscrapers stood as a testament to corporate dominance, but this new typology of super tall, thin buildings heralds both a new program and function and, as such, deserves a closer look. We believe that adaptation demands a new vocabulary of formal expression for these towers.

True luxury evolves from the ability to have the best of multiple worlds without compromise, and in this tower, the best of urban living melds with the dream of a suburban backyard resulting in the ultimate urban fantasy. By “stretching” the building vertically beyond its original program, we were able to create gaps, 16 feet in height, between every two floors.

These gaps contain full floor sculptural gardens equal to the footprint of the building, and will be directly accessible from each apartment. As a result, every 2,800 square foot apartment will have a spectacular 1,400 square feet of an open private garden. The expansive height of the space will permit a suffusion of sunlight throughout.

The central core and perimeter design will dramatically reduce the wind load without sacrificing the 360-degree view. The result, while based on a simple idea, is both striking and fresh. It breaks through the purely functional to restore all that we have sacrificed, and with it, creating a new urban reality.
