Air-right

In New York City, if Building A is “underbuilt” according to the neighborhood’s zoning code, the developer of nearby Building B can acquire Building A’s unused air space and add it to their own site’s allotment, which is the developer’s air rights. We take the space above Moma building and expand the “belly” of our project to acquire more floor area.

Art

Overwriting Jean Nouvel Architects’ 78-floor Tour de Verre, we are introducing a mixed-use tower consisting of office, hotel and a vertical gallery called MoMA Air Rights. There are two galleries inside the building. The middle portion of the tower is the main gallery and the gallery’s higher portion penetrates into the hotel, creating an atrium in the middle.
