Roosevelt Island building proposal has ‘air-scrubbing’ feature

By Kate Sheehy September 21, 2020 | 2:57pm

Now this is a climatic scene.

A behemoth air-scrubbing high-rise that looks straight out of a sci-fi flick has been designed for the middle of Roosevelt Island.

The tree-studded, 2,400-foot-tall, futuristic proposal is planned to loosely resemble a mandrake plant — with a base like a cruise ship morphing into a gleaming twisty tower a la surrealist Salvador Dali — and take over much of the East River isle off Manhattan.
