SHoP Architects, 2017

Be among the first to tour the Skybridge at JDS Development Group and SHoP Architects' American Copper Buildings. American Copper presents two bold and dynamic copper towers on New York City's East River. The approximately 800-unit luxury rental community reaches 41 and 48 stories in height with an iconic skybridge connecting the two towers. The skybridge not only serves as an incredible amenity space (where you can swim from one tower to the other) but also serves an important function by connecting the towers mechanically. In this way, the towers are in constant dialogue with each another, dancing on the skyline. Take in sweeping views of the Empire State Building, East River and the Manhattan skyline.

The dancing towers bring energy and inspiration for future innovative growth and resilient design in its neighborhood along the East River. Clad in copper, this living material will patina gracefully over time, representing the tallest copper-clad building in the world. As a developer and construction company, JDS is dedicated to pushing design boundaries and aligning incentives to leave the urban landscape better served by its buildings. JDS and SHoP continue to collaborate on some of the most dynamic new residential buildings in Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn, including 111W57, 9 DeKalb, and 247 Cherry Street.

Saturday & Sunday Tour Info: OpenDialogue Design Tours with SHoP Architects will take place on both days of OHNY Weekend. (45 min)
