Hines and its partner Pacolet Milliken Enterprises have unveiled the design for the forthcoming Bryant Park office tower in Manhattan, US
The 28-storey, 450,000ft² structure was designed by Henry Cobb and Yvonne Szeto of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners.
The building’s entrance façade is punctuated by a concave sculptural detail, which cuts an hourglass shape into the building, distinguishing the design and creating unique feature windows on every tenant floor.
The project is being built in partnership with Pacolet Milliken, which has owned the site since 1954.
Construction is expected to begin next year and the building will be complete by 2014.
