Dezeen Announces Top 10 Skyscrapers of 2016

Friday, December 9, 2016

Enclos projects among Dezeen’s and Construct Connect’s top buildings of 2016. Dezeen released its Top 10 Skyscrapers of 2016 earlier this month. Enclos collaborated on all four of Dezeen’s domestic projects mentioned. Construct Connect’s “Top Five Coolest Buildings of 2016” features the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington, D.C. as well as VIA 57 West.

The NMAAHC designed by David Adjaye features cast aluminum painted bronze Corona panels as part of an outer brise soleil.  Additionally, skylights, metal panels, and storefront systems were all designed and installed by Enclos.

Dezeen’s top 10 skyscrapers of 2016 include Enclos projects all around New York. VIA 57 West by Bjarke Ingel’s is a whopping 467 feet and is best known for its triangular features and strategically placed courtyard often dubbed the “Courtscraper.”

This list would not be complete without Enclos’ very own 56 Leonard in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood. The tower rises 57 floors into the sky and features ten luxury penthouses overlooking several of New York most promising neighborhoods. 56 Leonard’s unique “Jenga-like” appearance is what draws all the attention. Penthouses are situated at irregular intervals giving the illusion of stacked boxes.

Standing at a whopping 1396 feet tall is 432 Park Avenue, also in Manhattan. 432 Park Avenue has been part of New York’s “super-slenders” for a little over a year now and continues to make its mark by being coined the tallest residential building in the world. 432 Park Avenue features 12-foot ceilings with unparalleled views of the city.

A couple of blocks away from the Hudson River stands 10 Hudson Yards, also known as Tower C. This tower is just one of two towers that Enclos has worked on during the course of the enormous Hudson Yards development. 10 Hudson Yards is the home of Coach’s new global headquarters, L’Oreal USA, and SAP amongst many others.
