In New York, they want to build the longest skyscraper in the world: its length will be a record 1,200 meters.
According to Archdaily, the project will be called The Big Bend. At the same time, speaking about the record length of the building, we should not keep in mind its height. The whole secret is that it will have the shape of an arch. At the same time, existing houses will stand under the arch.
The project will be undertaken by the architectural firm Ohio, construction is to begin on two small plots on 57th Street in Manhattan near the famous Central Park. The result should be a building 600 meters high, this will be enough for a fantastic view of the whole city. There will be apartments, the cost of which will be one of the highest in the country. Innovative elevators from Thyssen Krupp will be used for the convenience of residents.
It is worth noting that the city authorities have not yet approved the construction of this skyscraper, 10 more large projects are under consideration.
