We haven’t yet heard how many feet this skyscraper would rise, but, at 60 stories, it could very well become one of the top five tallest buildings in the city. Right now, the third tallest is Charles Luckman’s Aon Center, which at 62 stories, tops out at 858 feet.
Architects Nardi Associates have designed this unique skyscraper in South Park to hold a hotel, housing, convention center, restaurants, and shops. The facade would incorporate LED signs and live plants, making it look like a “giant urban tree,” says the firm’s website. Its exterior would feature “real vegetation…combined with digitized landscape images and signage growing along its structural grid and glass surfaces.”
