The South Tower

The South Tower

Project Manager/Designer: Robert M. Scarano jr.

Completion Date: 2008

Location: Brooklyn, NY

This 190-foot tall, 80,000.0 square foot tower is a mixed use development constructed above a single story base on a currently vacant lot.

The building's base will house medical offices, an executive parking garage, retail shops and public spaces.

The building is conceived as a freestanding sculptural element placed within the cityscape.

While most residential or office towers are static objects in the skyline, marked by typical floors and repetition, the design concept for this unique project presents the residential building from a different perspective: it is developed to provide the tower with movement and keep its structural forces evident.
