16 W 40 - The Bryant

Northwest corner from Bryant Park.

Superstructure has topped out and window installation has reached approximately the half way mark at the Bryant, a 33-story mixed-use tower in Midtown from HFZ Capital Group. The tower is designed by David Chipperfield Architects in their signature modernist style that emphasizes a rationalist grid of windows and structure. Rather than rely on the exposed concrete structure, as seen in similar towers like 432 Park Avenue, the structural members are instead clad in precast concrete terrazzo panels. The windows, one of which has been installed on the north facade, are actually full-height sliding doors with a metal railing of vertical pickets.

The tower will offer a mix of uses including a 230-key hotel on floors 2 through 15, 57 condominium apartments on floors 16 through 33, and ground floor retail and restaurant. Amenities in the tower include lobby lounge, fitness center, bike storage and hotel specific amenities.
