SHoP reveals new views inside its ultra-luxe American Copper Buildings

Back in April this year, we got a first look inside the amenity spaces at the SHoP’s American Copper Buildings in Kips Bay. And now, the development team is giving us the first glimpse inside the towers’ apartments in a new set of renderings. The under-construction project is perhaps most recognizable for a three-story, amenity-packed skybridge that connects the two buildings that make up this rental project.

The JDS-developed rental comes with 761 apartments spread out over the two towers. The interiors have also been designed by SHoP, in one of the rare instances that the firm has worked on the interiors of its projects. The standout features in the apartments (some of which can be seen in the renderings) include almost 10-foot high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and custom oak floors.


In the kitchens, SHoP has designed a kitchen island, and will provide residents with Miele appliances including a speed oven, and a statuary marble countertop and backsplash. The master bathrooms will be equipped with black pearl stone floor tile, a full length built-in medicine closet, and a rain shower head and hand shower.


Apart from the building’s 75-foot lap pool located in the skybridge 300-feet above ground, the rental’s more grounded amenities include a landscaped park and fountain, a porte cochère, a “curated marketplace,” details on which are yet to be unveiled, and a speakeasy.


Thursday also marked the launch of the affordable housing lottery at the rental towers, 6sqft first reported. A total of 160 apartments are available through this lottery [PDF!] and prices start at $833 per month for a studio and go up to $1,247 for a three-bedroom. Income brackets range from $29,898 to $63,060. Construction is already in full swing, and leasing on the market-rate apartments is scheduled get underway sometime this fall.
