Mixed-use development comprised of twin
condominium towers and retail plinth.
The project takes advantage of its dramatic position along the
waterfront on Staten Island through varied facade types that respond to the nature
of the views and relationships they frame with the immediate context. The facades that overlook the Hudson River
and Manhattan are floor to ceiling glass, emphasizing the dramatic panoramas of
the water and city. The views inward
towards Staten Island are defined by more controlled punched openings. This specificity of relationship between
views and building skin enhances the quality of the interior spaces while
simultaneously resulting in a dynamic building that reflects the qualities of the surrounding context.
