the condominium towers sit along the western edge of soho between broome and watts streets, and is currently being developed in partnership between SHVO, halpern real estate ventures, bizzi & partners development and itzhaki acquisition. internally, a diverse array of facilities will be integrated for private and public use accessed on the ground level and natural light will travel down and light the shared atrium space shared between the two towers. furthermore, the italian architect’s style of weightlessness and transparency will be recognized with the use of curved glass on the building’s façade.

the residential skyscraper contains 115 apartments
