Tower 28

November 27, 2016

Tower 28 in Long Island City was designed to be a 57-story residential rental tower inclusive of a luxury amenity experience to rival any vacation destination.  The building is comprised of two connected segments; the tower on 28th Street houses all of the 451 residential units, while the smaller building on 27th Street houses amenities including a pool, a fitness center, spa, sauna and yoga studio. The two segments are connected on the 2nd floor by a covered breezeway and share a roof deck that can be opened in summer months via a Nanawall to the pool in the amenity building.

The tower’s mass is broken into lighter volumes to create a slender volumetric expression.   A combination of spandrel glass and fritted glass panels in a variety of different colors and patterns, are layered to create compositions that move up the building in shifting, dynamic movements.  The observation deck on the 60th floor of the building allows residents to take in the incredible views.

Skyline Tower

November 27, 2016

The tallest building in Long Island City, Skyline Tower will rise 67 stories.  The 800 condominium units will have unparalleled 360 degree views of Manhattan and the surrounding skyline.  This all glass curtainwall building is a sleek, monolithic structure with re-entrant corners articulating the form and creating a place for balconies.  The designers used two shades of glass, a neutral blue on the broader faces of the building and a clear green on the edges.  The result is a building that appears to expose its special interiors beyond its glassy exterior. The base and crown are screened with metal fins that add lightness and conceal parking at the base.  This language of metal fins allows the private residential entry and the public MTA entry at the building base to both relate to each other and be separate.

The building features a double-height sky-lit amenity space with a mezzanine lounge overlooking a pool on the 3rd floor. On the 5th floor amenities overlook an exterior terrace. A fitness center, sauna, spa, yoga room, parking, and storage round out the luxury experience.
