Premuim Design with Mid-town Manhattan Views
The unique composition of SlenderWall panels was key to achieving the goal of more views. With their lighter weight, SlenderWall panels enable designers to incorporate large window openings without compromising structural integrity. Additionally, the manufacturing system creates efficiencies of scale, which this project’s architects used to great advantage. Here, the panels were designed in a repetitive, squared-donut arrangement that both met design goals and facilitated a very efficient layout across the building’s façade. The panels’ weight advantage also allowed installation to occur from a single tower crane across the building’s wide footprint.
“People have a lot of assumptions, but when they come over here, they realize how nice it is,” Alexander Hovnanian, area vice president with K. Hovnanian said in an interview with the New York City-based website Observer. “The views of the city and river are spectacular. It’s literally a perspective that can’t be offered within NYC.”
