American Copper Buildings to see 3-storey skybridge in New York
Posted on: 28/04/2016

Two residential towers in New York will see a skybridge connecting the towers, 300 feet above the ground.

SHoP Architects are creating two copper apartment towers in a tilting position, each of which offering 300 unique apartment layouts. 20% of these will be affordable housing. They will offer views of the Empire State Building, East River, and the Manhattan skyline.

The skybridge will consist of three storeys, including a pool, hot tub, and residents’ bar and lounge, creating a new vertical community. It will be the first major new skybridge built in New York for over 80 years.

The 48-storey towers, known as the American Copper Buildings, will be located on the eastern edge of Manhattan, and is due for completion in early 2017.
