Almost impossible to miss when looking at the Manhattan Bridge from the Brooklyn Bridge, Chinatown, the Lower East Side, or almost anywhere else in the city, One Manhattan Square rises 847 feet into the sky, and is the 18th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. With its reflective chevron window pattern on the north and south elevations, the glass residential building holds 1,260,000 square feet of space with 25,516 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. It was designed by Adamson Associates, and is being developed and marketed by Extell.
