The Spiral


Located at the intersection of the High Line and Hudson Boulevard on Manhattan’s new western frontier, the project extends the green space of the old train tracks in a spiraling motion towards the sky.

The 306-meter-tall construction is a unique hybrid that intertwines a visually continuous green pathway with workspaces on every level. The spiral chain of amenity spaces and terraces originates at the main entrance – at the corner of 34th Street and Hudson Boulevard – and wraps around the tower, which gradually becomes slimmer towards the top, creating unique floor configurations that will cater to a diverse community of tenants and thus making the building a lively and inviting place for businesses of different scales.

The Spiral sets a new standard for the workplace, where nature becomes an integral part of the work environment while spatial features are always adaptable to the changing needs of tenants and their organizations. The stepped form of the building evokes New York City’s classic ziggurat-shaped skyscrapers at the same time that its innovative design puts it at the forefront of contemporary architecture, on a path to becoming a classic in the Manhattan skyline.
