Situated on a 1 acre site adjoining the slipway to Roebling’s Bridge, the building reaches 300 feet at its pinnacle and is a departure from the surrounding waterfront buildings. Even so, the building features a color palate that echoes the trusses and cables of the bridge, paying homage to Roebling while also suggesting the promises of a digital future. The ascending crescent form and sloped rooflines offer…
