Armenian architect planned 305-metre skyscraper for Midtown Manhattan, NY

Moscow-based studio Meganom has been tapped to design its first US project – a slender, 305-metre residential skyscraper planned for Midtown Manhattan. The supertall tower, called 262 Fifth Avenue, is slated to rise in the Nomad district near Madison Square Park.

The skyscraper will ascend to 1,001 feet (305 metres) and will be "unlike anything else built in New York", according to the team.

 "A progressive example of forward-thinking and contemporary design, it will include several 'firsts' in terms of its design and environmental sustainability features," said the team.

 Last year New York-based Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly completed the supertall, 425-metre-high 432 Park Avenue in the city.

The slim skyscraper by Meganom will occupy a parcel that spans from 260 to 264 Fifth Avenue. Two vacant structures are being demolished to make way for the tower, while a historic, 12-storey limestone building will be integrated into the skyscraper's base.

The project will be Meganom's first in America. Founded in 1998, the Moscow-based architecture and urban design firm led by Yury Grigoyan, llya Kuleshov, Elena Uglovskaya and Artem Staborovsky.

The firm's recent commissions include an extension to the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the renovation of the Kremlin Museum and the creation of a new masterplan for Gorky Park – all located in Moscow.
