American Copper: Master Planning

Simon Koster, principal of JDS Development Group, and Gregg Pasquarelli, a principal of SHoP Architects​ discuss the drive and inspiration behind ​American Copper Buildings’ design. American Copper is a pair of ​luxury rental towers connected by a skybridge offering remarkable views and rich amenities, bringing modern convenient living to an urban but beachy river-front area of New York City. In spite of the many constraints, the builder and the architect ensured that the values of sustainability, design, and living were carried on throughout the entire process of executing the project, making American Copper Buildings a one-of-a-kind piece of architecture.
