Palladian architect to design New York City’s tallest skyscraper
Palladian architecture firm Palladian Architects has designed a skyscraper in New York’s Greenwich Village that will stand at over 7,000 feet.
The 9,600-square-foot tower is the tallest building in the United States and is the first building to be built by Palladian since the firm was founded in 2000.
The firm is also working on a new high-rise tower in New Jersey and is currently designing an office building in Boston.
“We’ve been working on this project for over two years and we were very happy with it,” Palladian President and CEO Eric Ressler told CNBC.
“It is the highest building in New England and the tallest in the world.”
The new skyscraper will rise nearly 300 feet above Greenwich Village.
The structure will be designed by Palladians architect, Christopher Bostwick.
The design was first revealed in March 2017.
“Palladian Architects is a premier firm in the field of architecture, with a diverse portfolio of projects including residential, commercial and mixed-use structures,” Ressler said in a statement.
The skyscraper, named after the first Palladian building, will be completed in 2019. “
As we look ahead to the next phase of this project, we are excited to be working with Palladian to deliver the most stunning residential, office and commercial buildings in New America.”
The skyscraper, named after the first Palladian building, will be completed in 2019.
Palladian plans to demolish the buildings’ historic facade and replace it with a brand new facade in the next several years.
The building will be a major part of the development plans for the newly constructed New York headquarters of General Electric, Ressler added.
“With our portfolio of highly regarded architecture projects, we aim to take our vision of a New York that is connected to the future of New York, to the 21st century, and to New York itself, one step at a time,” Roli said.
