a new drone video released by creative agency darkhorse has revealed the scale of what will be bjarke ingels’ first realized building in new york. officially titled ‘via 57 west’, the building stands at 450 feet (137 meters) and is scheduled to complete in 2016. located along manhattan’s west side highway, the residential project has been dubbed the ‘courtscraper’, based on its typological fusion of a european perimeter block and a traditional new york high rise.

 

watch the full drone video below, and read designboom’s previous coverage of the project here.
