New York City is about to achieve one more architecture landmark. Architizer.com is reporting:

"We have some BIG news! The architectural wonderboy has done it again: Bjarke Ingels will soon be moving forward with a one-of-a-kind pyramid building along Manhattan’s west side. Real estate giant Douglas Durst has long be pondering what to do with his almost entire block of land at 57th street and the Hudson River, and after plans for a data center, a school, and even a hip hotel fell through, BIG stepped in to create the most unique building on the strip. This week, city planning commissioner Amanda Burden gave her official stamp of approval for the project, which is sure to become a hot spot for shopping, dining, and—last not but least—living

The pyramid slopes up to 38 stories, with a giant courtyard, almost the size of a football field, cut out of the center. The cutout is not only a never-before-seen feature tucked inside the facade of a New York City tower; it also provides each and every apartment a terrace."
