As construction manager, Gotham oversaw the completion of this 235,000 sf luxurious condominium, designed to feature 89 sprawling residences spread out over 31 stories. This concrete superstructure has two very distinct architectural elements. The first six floors are detailed with a limestone-clad façade, and house Atelier loft-style duplex apartments with oversized roof terraces serving the upper duplexes. The tower sets back at the seventh floor and is a custom curtain wall with a super clear, blue-hued glass exterior to create transparency and expansive city views from every exposure. Corner wrap terraces complete the overall architectural design. Unique building elements include a viewing platform at the roof of the building with a custom stairway and ‘birdcage’ enclosure that is the centerpiece of the rear garden with an open framing system that is 5 stories high.  Apartments were detailed with the highest level of finishes with a tremendous amount of attention paid to exacting tolerances. Kitchen stone countertops, cabinets and flooring were all imported from Italy, as was the door hardware, wood flooring, marble bath tile, and tub enclosures.
