About Sky

Upon completion, Sky will be the largest apartment building in New York City with around 1,100 rental units; 939 units will be market rate apartments, 235 units will be permanently affordable and penthouse units will be on the top floors. The tower will have a 70,000 square feet club with indoor and outdoor pools, spa services, luxury amenities, 20,000 square feet of ground retail space and parking garages. Sky is designed with a cleaner façade than most rental buildings as it was designed with central air and no visible grills.
