Head over to Manhattan’s far west side, and you’ll spot a new skyscraper on the block. Twisting more than 300 metres into the sky, The Spiral is the latest supertall building taking shape on New York City’s ever evolving skyline.
But this isn’t just any old skyscraper.
In a sea of glass, The Spiral will add a small touch of green through its cascading landscaped terraces that will, yes, spiral around the building.
The project is out to set a new standard for office design and finds itself completing at a time when the office tower is having a bit of an identity crisis. After sitting empty for nearly two years, there’s now a battle underway to lure workers back to their offices.
The Spiral pulls out all the stops: sustainable building practices, indoor-outdoor spaces and a glimpse of nature several hundred metres in the air. But will it mark the start of a new look for the New York skyscraper, or end up as an exception in the concrete jungle?
