Sustainable Vertical Neighborhood Proposed

This iconic 950 foot tall residential tower is proposed for a micro-urban site in New York City. Designed by solus4, an architecture and planning firm, the tower is a vertical neighborhood creating an efficient and valuable use for a small and otherwise underutilized water’s edge site. Uniquely, the tower is designed by solus4 using their SNCI principals (Sustainable Neighborhood Collaborative Initiative). Applying these principles to a vertical neighborhood requires the full engagement of the design team, the building team, the financing team and the owners.

With a cross-section of G plus 55, there are 50 full-floor four bedroom plus apartments planned at approximately 3,000 square feet each served by high speed destination selective elevators. The distinctive shape of this tower comes from its innovative structure and energy generating systems. The entire structural system, designed by LeMessurier Consultants, is in-situ concrete with flat slabs supported by columns and shear walls embedded in the extruded core shaft leaving large portions of the perimeter free for the 14 foot floor to ceiling glass.

The exterior glazing makes up one of the tallest proposed hybrid double glazed skins. While the initial intent of the double skin is to enhance the thermal barrier thereby controlling heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter, an interesting added benefit will be the chimney effect at the external surface. Strategically placed mini-turbines take advantage of the vertical air movement to generate supplementary power. Balconies at each floor provide exterior space for the resident while adding a variable shading screen to further control glare and heat gain. Temperature controlled window shading with personal preference overrides will provide for individual comfort requirements in any season.

The 950 foot tall blade mast is cantilevered off the concrete frame. Its entire outside surface as well as certain portions of the exterior glazing is covered with transparent thin film photo voltaic panels projected to provide – in combination with other passive and active sustainable systems, the majority of the power requirement for the building. Initial calculations show the building generating excess power at certain times of the year thereby a possible source of income to the residence owners. Keeping to the SNCI principles for energy savings strategies, the building will have no parking except for a quantity of all-electric cars in a variety of model configurations (sedans, SUVs, mini-cars, etc.) that will be garaged on-site and owned and operated by the common ownership of the residences using a card access system.

The balconies, in addition to providing living space and shading, also act as rainwater collectors. The rainwater, rather than being shed to the street, will be harvested and added to the grey water recycling system. Along with fully integrated energy management systems, each apartment will have its own mini-plant for comfort control, domestic water and recycling thereby ensuring a stand-alone capability and reduced reliance on central systems.

The street level base of the tower will include – in addition to the entrance/exit to the all electric car garage – a multi level common social space including neighborhood retail and food outlets, mini-produce market, terraced cafes, recreation, gym, swimming, museum/gallery space and office/studio space for residents.

Not only will this building provide residences with outstanding views in an outstanding location convenient to all parts of the City, but will also place the owners of the residence in the forefront of low impact and sustainable communities.

Is this a project or just a concept ?

Don098 Jul 29, 2011 7:29 PM

Whoa, this looks sweet

scalziand Jul 29, 2011 7:53 PM

I'm trying to nail down which lot this project is on. The only street level view shows it being just down the street from BOA, which is obviously wrong. The skyline shots show it to be in the vicinity of the end of Canal street. I think these are some plausible sites. The general area has been targeted for redevelopment for a bit now. Trump SOHO isn't too far away.

nice. very very nice.

It suggests, without at all copying, Calatrava's old proposal.

Color me excited.

RobertWalpole Jul 29, 2011 8:05 PM

The tan building just to the right of the sailboat is on Canal just east of West Street. This building appears to sit on the site of the old gas station on the south corner of Canal and West Street.

That's not BOA, that's a close relative of Libeskind's WTC.

Check out that shot and this one from google.

I think they've just sort of photoshopped a generic view of the area. But you can definitely see Goldman Sachs and some of the towers in battery park.

Ooooooooh. Now I recognize Goldman Sachs too. Thanks for setting me straight on that.:notacrook:

RobertWalpole Jul 29, 2011 8:44 PM

This is definitely the lot on Canal and West on which the old gas station was located.

You can see the huge warehouse building that St. John's owns, etc.

uaarkson Jul 29, 2011 8:48 PM

I would have never guessed that a skyscraper would go up in that area, let alone one that's almost 1000 ft. tall. A pleasant surprise that I hope makes it beyond proposal.

yankeesfan1000 Jul 29, 2011 8:55 PM

This came out of no whereeeee. The lot where this is located is very small, and this neighborhood is really turning into a pretty fancy part of LM.

Im having a hard time grasping the height however. The surrounding buildings are generally low rise, with the exception of the office building a few blocks south. Anyone know if this got air rights from the "Tower O Garbage" site up a block or so on West St? Or if this is even a serious proposal, and not just a a vision?

Just want to add, in the map that scalziand posted, the most likely spot is the one in the bottom left corner, the one that's sort of cut off. If anyone is wondering, the two sites along West St are being developed by the Department of Sanitation, so they're not barren.

Nice proposal, yet I'll save the celebration for when it is actually under construction.
