360 State Street is a 300-foot (91 m) residential skyscraper completed in 2010 in New Haven, Connecticut. It is the second-tallest building in the city, and the largest apartment building in the state.[6][7] DeSimone Consulting Engineers were the structural engineers on the building and it won the 2009 New York Construction - Top Project of the Year. [8]


The mixed-use modernist building, includes 500 luxury apartments and 25,000 sq ft (2,300 m2) of retail space. Designated a "green" building by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), it is the first residential building in Connecticut to gain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum status and includes a rooftop garden as well as a corner "pocket park" that may be developed as a day care center in the future.[9][10] A full-scale food co-op occupies the building's ground floor.[11] 360 State was constructed on the site where Shartenberg's Department Store stood from 1915 to 1962.[12]
