New residential towers in New York to be linked by a skybridge 

SHoP Architects are creating two copper-clad bent apartment towers in New York that will be connected by a three-storey skybridge 300 feet above the ground.

The skybridge will include a 75' lap pool, a whirlpool hot tub and residents’ bar & lounge helping to create a new vertical community. The skybridge carries and unifies the building utility systems and is the first major new skybridge to be built in New York for over 80 years.

Each of the two towers offers over 300 one-of-a-kind apartment layouts with sweeping views of the Empire State Building, East River and the Manhattan skyline.

Called the American Copper Buildings – and formerly known as 626 First Avenue – the 41- and 48-storey residential towers are rising on First Avenue and 36th Street on the eastern edge of Manhattan. The waterfront site overlooks the East River. The development is part of an ongoing trend sweeping New York at present for high end residential towers.
