First Full Look at Extell’s 80-Story One Manhattan Square, 800 Condos Aimed at Asian Buyers

One Manhattan Square is the marketing name given to the newest super-tall tower being built by Extell Development in the Lower East Side. Here is a new artist rendering of how the tower will look in the neighborhood.

A previously unpublished rendering accompanying the Bloomberg story provides us with our first glimpse of the tower’s two-toned facade that appears to be composed of a patterned, vertically-pleated glass skin and a copper-toned elevation.

Situated directly North of the Manhattan Bridge, the 80-story tower has been met with intense public outrage and controversy due to its unprecedented height in a predominantly mid-rise neighborhood.
