Its only commonality is the multistory gaps that separate it into stacked condos. Otherwise, it's facade is metal and glass, and it has a sloped crown.

This building is great. I hope they build it just like the renders, and especially with those gardens. Someone should build one of these super-expensive condo towers with a garden floor for every unit. Now that would be amazing. Vertically stacked mansions with green spaces.

Oddly, the gates to the nearby lot were open and unattended.

ARCHITECTURE
Perkins+Will proposes svelte tower for Midtown Manhattan
By Adam Williams

March 24, 2015

2 Pictures

The luxury condominium tower includes features that focus on shared community spaces (Image: Perkins+Will)
Image Gallery (2 images)


Architecture giant Perkins+Will recently shared plans for a skinny 65-story skyscraper intended for Midtown Manhattan's East 37th Street. Comprising a total floorspace of 13,935 sq m (150,000 sq ft), the as-yet unnamed luxury condominium tower includes five open-air gardens and an outdoor cinema.

Developed by Nef of Turkey, the concept tower sports a steel and glass facade and will rise to a height of 213 m (700 ft) tall, the same height as NYC's Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower (once the tallest building in the world, between 1909 to 1913). It's still a minnow compared to the city's tallest buildings though, like the One World Trade Center, for example.

As of writing, all Perkins+Will has shared about the tower's proposed physical footprint is that it will be very slim. The firm reports that it will employ a hybrid steel structure with concrete core to reduce the overall thickness of the elevator core by around half, while also removing the need for corner columns, and thus increasing available space further.


The tower's interior layout promotes shared living spaces. These include a total of five large open-air garden areas, which are always within a maximum distance of four floors for any given residence, in addition to a yoga studio, jacuzzi, fitness room, outdoor cinema, and an infinity pool. Wind in the outdoor areas is kept under control with screening, and another garden space is installed on the rooftop.


"The idea is to create a new kind of communal ecosystem of social relationships within a thin tower design," says associate architect Scott Allen. "Rather than giving residents small, almost unusable balconies as seen in many towers, they will enjoy big community terraces that are the kind of social and interactive spaces in high demand today."

The tower isn't even under construction yet (Arch Daily reports it's slated for completion in 2017), but has already bagged an award – the MIPIM Architectural Review Future Projects Award.

Not everyone's a fan though, and Treehugger's Lloyd Alter questions the wisdom of a slim tower from a firm known for its sustainable designs, writing "super-slenders are hugely expensive to build, requiring the same stairs, elevators and emergency systems as buildings with floor plates ten times the size."

East 37th Street's Garden-Filled Tower Reveals New Details



Quote:
The developer is the the Turkish firm Nef, but all of the information about the project is sill coming from the design team at Perkins+Will. Robert Goodwin, the New York design director at the firm, told Bloomberg that future residents of the 65-story, 700-foot tower will have access to five "clusters" of amenities that will hold gardens, a fitness center, infinity pool, and an outdoor cinema. "You're never really four or five floors away from a common space," said Goodwin, which apparently means the building will be like "a vertical West Village street."


Quote:
The building, to be located at 12 East 37th Street, measures just 50 feet wide by 54 feet deep—making it skinnier than 111 West 57th Street, which has been called the "world's most slender building"—, and it will house 65 condos, ranging from 400-square-foot studios to 1,800-square-foot full floor units. The built-in pocket parks are 33 feet tall.

Since the building is so slender, the designers moved the structural system to the exterior, giving the tower an exoskeleton with "a thin steel diagrid." The tower has a concrete core and no interior columns.

Even though plans have not been filed with the Department of Buildings, the team still expects construction to be complete in 2017.

This practice is becoming more popular as tenants (both residential and commercial) demand more open, column-less space. For example, 50 First St. in San Francisco is going to be supported completely by its exoskeleton, eschewing a concrete core entirely, and allowing for the massive, unbroken floorplates that Bay Area tech firms demand. I'm excited to see what kind of layouts this trend allows for!

I guess what I meant is -- and maybe discussing it in relation to this tower isn't exactly the right spot for it -- if 50 First in SF is any example, we're moving in a direction where it may become common to eliminate the core entirely.
