Luxurious Skybridge Links Budding Copper Buildings in Manhattan

JDS Development and SHoP Architects took inspiration from iconic Manhattan structures while striving to redefine the skyline with the American Copper Buildings. The use of russet-colored copper panels, which will develop a pale green patina with age, was inspired by the material used to create the Statue of Liberty. The copper-clad structure cuts a unique silhouette along the East River: the two 40-plus-story towers twist apart at an angle and are connected by a unique skybridge that houses a lap pool, hot tub, and lounge.
