17 John Street, located in the Financial District in Manhattan and right next to the new Fulton Transit hub, is an Extended Stay Residence designed to service the ever evolving Financial District’s population.
The design for the 17John Street building combines the restoration of the existing Landmark with a 10-story “glass crystal”. The angled glass building extension optimizes views, modifies sun filtration and is LEED certified. The custom-designed aluminum facade fins shade the interiors while allowing for floor to ceiling glass facades. The fin’s subtle folding creates a soft ripple moving over the facade, transforming and changing the building from every angle. This high-end residential building holds compact residences where shared amenities create a luxurious atmosphere. The roof terrace offers a rooftop pool and great views over the New York Bay.
17 John Street will also be one of the first crowdfunded buildings in the USA.
