The SNCI Tower is a planned apartment skyscraper in New York City, New York. The building is planned to rise 289.6 metres (950 ft) in the city's TriBeCa district, with 57 floors. The building was proposed in mid-2011. The SNCI Tower was designed by the solus4 architectural firm and LeMessurier Consultants.[1]

Design[edit]

Solus4 designed the tower in accordance with what they dub their 'Sustainable Neighborhood Collaborative Initiative'. The tower features a double walled cladding system that uses a chimney effect to power turbines in the gap between the facades. The tower is supported by a stiff concrete spine that reduces the need for columns at the perimeter, opening up views. Each floor is a separate 3,000-square-foot (280 m2) apartment. The base will have parking for a fleet of communally owned electric cars.[2]
