Manhattan’s skyline is about to get thrown for a loop – literally. Plans have officially been unveiled to construct the world’s first U-shaped skyscraper in New York City, and it’s going to push the limits of architecture above the curve.
This is The Big Bend, a revolutionary curved skyscraper to be built on New York City’s 57th Street.
The Big Bend will, in fact, become the longest building in the world, surpassing even Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.
The building will require an elevator system that curves and loops just like the tower.
The construction date is unknown, but The Big Bend will take Manhattan’s skyline above the curve when it arrives.
