Status: Proposal


The proposed mix-used building is on a site that was recently rezoned by the NYC Planning Department to promote commercial activities in downtown Flushing, NY. The faceted glass fa├žade of the commercial office tower faces the major traffic street and marks the beginning of a commercial belt that veined throughout downtown Flushing. A centralized vertical core enables an all-around panoramic view for each floor. Shallow floor plates and higher floor to floor dimensions maximize natural light gain during the day time to reduce artificial lighting. This tower then sits on a porous plinth that interwove various community facilities and retail spaces to the existing urban context.
