New renderings are out for JDS Development Group’s American Copper Buildings residential development in Kips Bay, and they depict the soaring, dual-tower project and its plethora of amenities.
The SHoP Architects-designed buildings will hold 761 rental units ranging from studios to three-bedrooms. The towers will climb 40 stories and 49 stories, respectively, and will be connected by a 100-foot-long skybridge suspended 300 feet in the air – connecting floors 27 through 29.
The connecting feature will be the first new, major skybridge in New York City in 80 years, according to marketing materials, and will also house a number of tenant amenities – including a 75-foot lap pool, a whirlpool hot tub, a residents’ bar and lounge and private terraces located atop the skybridge.
Other amenities include a rooftop area that will hold a pool, bar, lounge and dining and grilling area, while elsewhere, the 900,000-square-foot development will hold a fitness center featuring a climbing wall, a yoga and pilates studio and a private spa.
Leasing at the American Copper Buildings will start this fall, according to the project’s recently launched teaser website.
Correction: A prior version of this article indicated sales would launch in the fall; leasing will start at the rental building in the fall.
