DESIGN CONCEPT: (text from the architect)
This tower is a dramatic architectural statement, using its windows and their punctured rhythm to become the facade’s only ornaments, distinguishing it from the more conventional glass and stone edifices of New York’s midtown.

Cassa’s program mixes public and private: combining restaurant and bar with boutique Hotel and luxury Condominiums that share a common triple height lobby.

The resulting design allows the two to co-exist while functioning independently.

The tower itself is delicately proportioned, resulting from the small site and slender floor plate, like an Obelisk marking the site.
