U-bend skyscraper to become worlds first in New York’s billionaire row!
The future looks to be just round the bend with plans for the world’s ‘longest’ skyscraper.
The two-in-one, 4,000ft skyscraper which developers hope to build in Manhattan would steal the title of the longest building in the world, dwarfing the Burj Khalifa.
Genius inventors claim to have made come up with a lift system which flips and turns horizontally to get round the Big Bend‘s curved peak.
The building proposal written up by Oiio Studio, states: “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.
“What was once considered to be the greatest challenge in elevator history, is finally becoming reality: the elevator that can travel 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.”
The structure has been described as ‘The longest building in the world,’ because a ground-breaking bend would connect two huge towers in a futuristic design.
Developers, Oiio Studio, have eyed 57 Street Billionaire’s row in New York City as the perfect spot to build the eye-catching U–bend skyscrape to make the most of limited space.
If built to the current design, the Big Bend would be almost 1,300 feet longer than the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which stands as the tallest and longest building in the world.
The proposal reads: “New York city’s zoning laws have created a peculiar set of tricks though which developers try to maximize their property’s height in order to infuse it with the prestige of a high rise structure.
“But what if we substituted height with length? What if our buildings were long instead of tall?
“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.”
“We can now provide our structures with the measurements that will make them stand out without worrying about the limits of the sky.”
Now all the studio needs to do is raise the cash to turn the stunning plans reality.
