With its unique design, the firm hopes to overcome New York's zoning rules. "If we manage to bend our structure instead of bending the zoning rules of New York we would be able to create one of the most prestigious buildings in Manhattan. The longest building in the world," says the firm's official website.
Along with its distinct structure, the firm also promises an elevator system that can move in curves - horizontally and in continuous loops. "The innovative track changing system allows for the horizontal connection of two shafts on the top and bottom to create a continuous loop," says the firm's official website.
Several people have shared their opinion on the proposed building on Twitter.
