7 Exciting New Developments
and Designs in NYC
BY Daniel Lambraia
Ever since the tragedy of 9-11,
rebuilding a new World Trade Center
has been a focal point in NYC and
American culture. As the fourth and final
installment of downtown’s revitalization,
the building will stand second tallest to 1
World Trade as the four buildings frame
the 9/11 Memorial.
This U-shaped building has its sights set
on being the longest building in the
world. Set to be built on “billionaire’s
row,” this is one construction design that
needs to be seen to be believed. With
the help of horizontal running elevators,
this design has figured a way to bend
around NYC zoning laws.
Scheduled to be downtown’s tallest
residential building, 125 Greenwich will
just fall short of its neighboring One
World Trade. Plans for the tower show a
similarly slim build to the Western
Hemisphere’s current tallest, 432 Park
Being constructed in Tribeca, this tower
will be another of the buildings to
change the lower Manhattan skyline.
With curved glass and an elegant
design, tourists and locals alike will
enjoy this aesthetically pleasing new
addition to New York.
The “crystalline” tower is slated to be
massive at 1,296 feet, boasting
panoramic views of the Hudson and
East River. The building is planned to be
the second tallest office building in New
York, beating out the Empire State
Building, and would be home to the
new highest outdoor observation deck.
Located right along the Southern edge
of the park, 220 Central Park South will
give its residents some of the finest
views available of the illustrious
landscape. With reporting’s of nearly $1
billion in deposits already put down
from interested renters.
Another uniquely beautiful office building
is scheduled to be constructed near
Hudson Yards. Designed to encompass
an impressive 2.85 million square feet,
will run along 10th Ave - between West
34th and West 35th. Named after the
building’s design, The Spiral will
showcase beautiful landscaped terraces
cascading around the perimeter.
