Daniel Libeskind Tower for NYC!

Good Morning!

This just caught my eye on Inhabitat:

This proposal is for a building at One Madison Avenue (at 23rd street). 

"Daniel Libeskind recently unveiled a soaring green skyscraper for New York that is constructed of mostly glass and stands to be the city’s tallest residential structure at 900 feet. Dubbed the New York Tower at One Madison Avenue, the 54-story apartment building features a series of ‘sky gardens‘ cut out from its facade that provide green space and terraced balconies for residents. Terraced gardens are becoming quite popular as a means for people to have an outdoor connection, fresh air, and even a place to grow their own food."

Here is a link to an article in New York Magazine where Daniel Libeskind discusses this spectacular building. 

I normally wouldn't post about buildings that are not in the process of being built, but the thought of living down the street from where I currently reside, high in the sky with a wonderful garden outside of my door, got me very excited! 

Please bring more nature to us city folks!!

Thank you Inhabitat and Daniel Libeskind!

Have a wonderful day!
