This U-Shaped Building Could One Day Transform NYC's Skyline

A U-shaped building could someday transform Manhattan’s skyline.

Concept drawings for what’s being called “The Big Bend” were unveiled this week.

The glass-lined tower is 4,000 feet long. An elevator would travel in curves, horizontally and in continuous loops. A unique, track system would allow for a horizontal connection of two elevator shafts on the bottom and the top to create a continuous loop.
