A 102-story residential building with sweeping views of central park and the New York City skyline. Each unit has its own unique figurally carved façade and balconies that frame particular features of the surrounding urban and natural landscapes.
The building is draped in a façade of limestone-tinted Taktl© concrete panels with hydroformed sheet-bronze details and brass-tinted alloy structural extrusion enclosures.
The 64th floor features a sky-lobby with exclusive retail stores, a 2-story high ballroom for events, and a 4-star restaurant all of which have access to four massive cantilevered balconies that offer an awe- inspiring event and dining experience unique to the city of New York.

The 102-storey tower, proposed in the heart of Manhattan, New York City, would feature a carved stone facade and eye-catching glimmers of bronze. Residents would also be treated to sweeping views of Central Park and the city skyline, and a number of balconies would frame particular features of the surrounding landscape.
Due to its splendour, the mammoth residential tower has been described as what might happen if “Michelangelo was brought back to life and commissioned to design a skyscraper.” Gage said: “In our office discussions we thought that such a significant luxury building deserved more than just being yet another glass or steel modernist box.” Source by Caters News Agency, London.
