Skyline Tower

Hill West as Architects

The tallest building in Long Island City, Skyline Tower will rise 67 stories. The 800 condominium units will have unparalleled 360 degree views of Manhattan and the surrounding skyline. This all glass curtainwall building is a sleek, monolithic structure with re-entrant corners articulating the form and creating a place for balconies. The designers used two shades of glass, a neutral blue on the broader faces of the building and a clear green on the edges. The result is a building that appears to expose its special interiors beyond its glassy exterior. The base and crown are screened with metal fins that add lightness and conceal parking at the base. This language of metal fins allows the private residential entry and the public MTA entry at the building base to both relate to each other and be separate.

The building features a double-height sky-lit amenity space with a mezzanine lounge overlooking a pool on the 3rd floor. On the 5th floor amenities overlook an exterior terrace. A fitness center, sauna, spa, yoga room, parking, and storage round out the luxury experience.
