BIG unveils 300m-tall New York skyscraper

  • 1 Comment

Copenhagen and New York-based practice BIG has revealed plans for this 65-storey tower in Manhattan

ARCHITECT’S VIEW • PROJECT DATA

The 264,775m2 office tower, which has already been dubbed the Spiral, will feature a series of cascading landscaped terraces and hanging gardens.

Standing at 300m tall, the scheme’s six-storey base features a lobby, and a main entrance opening onto Hudson Boulevard East, 2,500m2 of retail space, and a seventh floor terrace.

Architect’s view

The Spiral will punctuate the northern end of the High Line, and the linear park will appear to carry through into the tower, forming an ascending ribbon of lively green spaces, extending the High Line to the skyline. The Spiral combines the classic Ziggurat silhouette of the premodern skyscraper with the slender proportions and efficient layouts of the modern high-rise. Designed for the people that occupy it, The Spiral ensures that every floor of the tower opens up to the outdoors creating hanging gardens and cascading atria that connect the open floor plates from the ground floor to the summit into a single uninterrupted work space. The string of terraces wrapping around the building expand the daily life of the tenants to the outside air and light.

  • But each is only a very small terrace for each floor. How much more exciting to link them all together in a single climb. Not many offices could offer a mountainous, climbable landscape of 300m.
