An Award-winning Tower Complex

Home to Bloomberg L.P.’s headquarters, this award-winning mixed-use project consists of a 54-story office and luxury residential tower and a 10-story building, connected by a unique horseshoe-shaped seven-story atrium.

In support of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and SLCE Architects, we provided structural design services for this tower complex of 1.35 million square feet, completed in 2004.

Highlights

  • The structure encompasses an entire city block in midtown Manhattan.
  • With a limited footprint and a height of 815 feet, the tower features a slender lateral system, which is complemented by a tuned mass damper to reduce wind-induced accelerations at the upper levels.
  • A unique system of outrigger, belt and transfer trusses transfer loads from the concrete flat plate structure of the residential levels to the steel frame of the underlying commercial levels.
  • The glass and metal curtain-wall system features stainless steel finishes on the lower floors, with painted aluminum finishes on the upper floors. 
  • The distinctive horseshoe-shaped atrium, also a stainless steel and glass, serves as an entrance for both the commercial and residential components of the tower.
