Manhattan developers continue building skyscrapers taller and taller, yet Greek planner Ioannis Oikonomou wants to break another sort of record.
His firm, Oiio Studio, has composed a U-molded tower called the “Big Bend” that aims to become, what Oikonomou calls, “the world’s longest building.
The design calls a super-tall, thin skyscraper bowed down the middle, to shape what resembles the first drop of a thrill ride. From the walkway to the building’s pinnacle, it would extend around 200 feet taller than One World Trade Center, the biggest tower in the city.
For the present, the Big Bend is simply a plan. Oikonomou discloses to Business Insider he has sent the outline to a couple of engineers and is as of now looking for a venture.
The private building would be situated on the southern fringe of Central Park, a zone that is known as “Billionaire’s Row” and contains many luxury skyscrapers.
Oikonomou is certain that arrangements for the Big Bend could push ahead since numerous designers will do whatever it takes to improve the rate of profitability, he says. In a large skyscraper that doesn’t consume up much room, more individuals would pay home loans or lease.
“The Big Bend has been created, among other things, to emphasize the fact that New York has become a giant hotel,” Oikonomou says, referencing the current pattern of individuals purchasing condominiums without utilizing them as main living places. The Big Bend would “ensure maximum profit for its investors, even if its apartments are inhabited only for some days every year.”
