Skyscraper planned for New York would be the World’s longest building
New York’s famous skyline could soon be transformed by a radical loop and the world’s longest skyscraper, called The Big Bend.
The Big Bend would be the longest skyscraper in the world at 4,000ft (1219m) long – almost twice as long as the Burj Khalifa if it was placed on its side.
The Architects Oiio Studio are the brains behind the idea who came up with the solution for combatting New York City’s zoning laws, which charge developers on a per-foot basis.
The Big Bend is proposed to go on Billionaire’s Row and if it gets the go ahead could be completed for 2019.
