'Submarine' takes RMJM to the US for the first time - images

  • Comment
RMJM is set to break into the US with this 19-storey residential scheme in New York's up-and-coming West Chelsea district.

Dubbed the 'Paranoid Tower' by the practice, the proposed project was inspired by a submarine and will look down on the nearby 'High Line' elevated railtrack redevelopment.

Paul Stallan, RMJM's UK design director, said: 'The submarine, with its skin and subversive character, appealed to us and seemed an appropriate metaphor for a building in the Chelsea district ( marked with the red dot in the image below), which overlooks the Hudson [River] and is in an area that is developing as one of New York's most interesting and challenging quarters.'

Details about the scheme's backers and exact location are being kept tightly under wraps. However, the AJ understands the tower will replace a disused warehouse.
