Israeli developer Boris Kuzinez’s Five Points Development has been assembling a development parcel on New York City’s Fifth Avenue, in the Nomad neighborhood near Madison Square Park, for some time now – leading to much speculation over the height and what’s to come.
Demolition has now begun at the site, 262 Fifth Avenue, and we’ve just introduced a first glimpse at Nomad’s first ever super-tall tower, a 1,001-foot-tall luxury residential spire. The building itself is guided by some unique concepts: The form of the skyscraper is shaped by a unique structural system that separates the building’s functioning core (elevators, mechanical systems, etc.) from its living spaces.
This creates expansive, unobstructed, column-free and customizable full-floor residences — an inventive design solution. Two signature elements when viewed from the outside: The eastern facade will be aluminum and glass, with perforated oversized “porthole” shaped windows. And at the top, a metal frame will shelter an arched observation deck for residents. Source and images, Courtesy of Meganom.
