From the height of the new skyscraper, the project of which was published by the architectural bureau Mark Foster Gage Architects, the whole city is in full view: the happiest ones can look at it every day, waking up in their bedrooms with panoramic windows, or at least sometimes, finding themselves at a closed event in a two-story ballroom or in the “heavenly lobby” with boutiques of the world's best brands. Designing the building for one of New York's premier real estate developers, Mark Foster Gage chose iron, concrete, glass, bronze and brass, with a carved façade as its most dramatic element.

The impressive shapes of the skyscraper - from large winding balconies to purely decorative elements of the facade - involuntarily remind of the architecture of Antoni Gaudi: the residential tower, which may appear at the foot of the Central Park, is difficult to compare with the bulk of the Sagrada Familia and its cultural value, but the creation of Mark Foster Gage can change the New York landscape almost as dramatically. While Londoners do not get tired of admiring Norman Foster's cucumber skyscraper and The Shard built by Renzo Piano, New York cannot be occupied with such novelties. Frenchman Jean Nouvel has already begun building his 53W53 residential tower this fall, and perhaps in the near future, Mark Foster Gage will also be able to create a new Manhattan landmark on the west side of 57th Street.
