The Copper Buildings

The most striking new residential development rising in Manhattan is undoubtedly the American Copper Buildings. JDS Development Group and SHoP Architects overlooked no detail in constructing these striking towers, which bend away from one another around their midpoints like two dancers in the midst of a twirl. This unique pair of asymmetrical towers is clothed in copper and glass and joined at the hip by a three-story-tall, glass-enclosed skybridge that houses some of the amenities available to residents, including a swimming pool. With their unprecedented shape and forward-looking copper façade, which is designed to age into a gentle patina, the American Copper Buildings stand at the forefront of NYC real estate development.
