Affirmation Tower, New York's Next Iconic Skyscraper

The project does not yet have a completion date, but the construction of the Affirmation Tower draws attention due to the unusual design of the building. Some may think they see an upside-down image at first, but the project's proposal is an inverted structure, with a narrow base and wider floors as the floors go up.

At 498 meters high and 90 stories high, the $3.5 billion building will be the second tallest in the city, behind One World Trade Center at 541 meters. The design and architecture firm Adjaye Associates signs the project and, as a tribute to the victims of September 11, 2001, chose to design a slightly lower building.

The iconic Affirmation Tower will be located in Manhattan. It will be a mixed complex, with offices, at least two hotels, rooftop event space and entertainment options, with a theatre and even a skating rink.
