The Madison Square Park Tower has a height of 237m and will be the tallest tower in midtown Manhattan.

The tower features a concrete skeleton covered in glass with a stone base that is intended to help blend with the neighbourhood at street level.

“The building features a manor house-inspired, granite-clad base that fits harmoniously within the tree-lined block,” said the team.

“The tower also features a sculpturally striking glass curtain wall facade,” the team added.

As it climbs skywards, the tower widens and cantilevers outwards by five metres on its western side.

Made up of 21,400m2, the skyscraper will contain 83 units featuring wall-to-ceiling windows, with views of city landmarks such as the Empire State building and the Chrysler building.

The interiors will be completed by London-based Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.

Amenities include a fitness centre, children’s playroom and a private dining room.
