Nice! I like it.



A sculptural tower of twenty-nine full-floor residences soaring five hundred feet in the sky with just one residence per floor. Designed inside and out by world-renowned architect Soo K. Chan of SCDA Architects. The finishes, amenities and services create sophisticated refuge just steps away from some of New York City’s most prestigious shopping, dining and cultural landmarks. All visible from the dramatic glass-walled living spaces graced with ten to twenty foot ceilings.

SCDA’s Switchback Skyscraper Launches Teaser Site and Clears its Midtown East Lot

SCDA’s Switchback Skyscraper Launches Teaser Site and Clears its Midtown East Lot
By Ondel Hylton
July 16, 2015


Last November, 6sqft brought you news that a 29-unit boutique condominium would rise at the edge of Billionaires’ Row, in that somewhat ambiguous zone occupied by Bloomingdale’s and Bloomberg LLP. Now, the high-end development’s teaser site has launched, which showcases a handful of images of the tower’s common spaces, and we took a trip to the site to get a first look at the construction progress.

More info and images in the post here.

Good looking design. Let's see how well it turns out IRL.

Another proposal,
A residential scheme in Manhattan by İstanbul-based firm Tabanlıoğlu Architects has been crowned overall winner at this year’s MIPIM Future Project Awards, announced this evening at a gala dinner in Cannes.

This luxury condominium tower, approximately 7,400m2, has 75 units on 25 floors, together with a ground floor lobby including shops and restaurants and a separate amenities floor. Reaching around 100m in height, the design of the tower is a simple and straightforward interpretation and reflection of the programmatic and environmental data: the beehive-like pattern of the facade represents the multiplicity of unit types where each module represents a vertical cluster of similar units. Being stuck between three buildings at three sides, the modules enlarge so that the units have greater openings to the view as the building rises. This facade pattern is further articulated by creating planar movement generating variations on different unit types.

At the nexus of the Upper East Side and Midtown and only three blocks from Central Park and the high-value Madison and Fifth Avenue retail corridors, the project offers convenient access to the diversity of the surrounding neighbourhoods characterised by abundant amenities including grocery markets, commercial banks, restaurants and bars on most street corners. While the avenues running north and south are usually bustling with commerce and traffic, most Upper East Side cross streets are tree-lined and serene.
