130 William is a slender 66-story, 800-foot luxury condominium tower in Manhattan’s Financial District of New York. It features 242 units ranging from studios to four-bedrooms. The precast concrete façade’s textured dark tone panels lead to bright and airy interiors. The rows of arched windows reference the historic warehouses of New York City with an eye toward innovation. Additional amenities in this skyscraper include a full-scale health and wellness club, IMAX theater, spa, private rooftop observatory deck and a new public park at the base. McSal’s solutions created an affordable concrete structure over earlier design iterations while improving architectural layouts, occupant comfort, and structural performance.
At 879 feet, Torre Mítikah is the tallest building in México City upon its completion. Situated in the Coyoacan neighborhood of the city, the building provides 65 stories of residences to compliment the overall Mítikah project which includes retail, office, entertainment, and outdoor leisure spaces. The reinforced concrete building was designed via a Performance Based Design approach that provides for both increased economy and increased safety in mitigating the strong earthquake characteristics of México City.
50 West 66th Street is a 69-story, 775-foot residential tower on the Upper West Side in the Lincoln Center neighborhood. The tower includes 127 condominiums that offer views of Central Park and the surrounding skyline. The unique structural solution provides a transfer system for the tower columns that simultaneously buttress the building. Large double-height spaces were created at the base of the building for a regulation basketball court as well as a synagogue which occupies the majority of the ground floor. Water Slosh Tank Dampers are utilized within the building crown to control lateral motions, improve occupant comfort and economize the structure.
11 Hoyt is a 57-story residential building with a façade featuring precast concrete scalloped panels shaped to create a wave-like effect. Reaching 620-feet, there are 480 units that offer 10-foot ceilings. Over 29,000 SF of amenities can be found on two levels which connect to a private outdoor park. The 32nd floor Sky Club provides private dining and entertainment with panoramic views. The existing foundation walls and much of the ground floor of the parking garage that previously occupied the site were incorporated into the new design. Additionally, an existing air parcel within the property was preserved and built over without interruption to the tenancy. This translated to additional cost savings beyond the lean structural design.
