The soaring new 912-foot-tall building (just one block from David Childs’ One World Trade and the Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus) is the latest starchitect-designed building luring residents back to the downtown, post 9/11..."Our palates were inspired by the exceptional views, the millwork detailing was inspired by yachting and automotive design, and the lobby and amenity spaces by the social spaces and warmth found in private members clubs," says Elliot March, co-founder of March & White. "When combined, these elements create a truly unique living environment."

The apartments and common areas are designed by March & White, a design firm with experience working on the interiors of superyachts and London private members clubs. “We used our background in designing superyachts, and applied our learning of how you design small spaces to the interior of the smaller units here,” said Elliot March, who runs the firm with James White.
