According to Dezeen, the super-skinny, 1,001-foot-tall building, is set to be built in New York City’s Nomad district near Madison Square Park (it’ll have some pretty high-end neighbors, too).

As the firm notes on its website, each apartment is positioned like a “shelf” above the other, with floor-to-ceiling windows and a 180-degree, unobstructed view to the north and south. The “open room,” just above the building’s penthouse, will be reservable for private functions. Speaking of the penthouse, check out the rendering below.
