Scheduled to be up and running this summer, the Mercedes House by Ten Arquitectos will provide a fresh new look to the bustling streets of Midtown Manhattan. With spectacular views of De Witt Clinton Park and the Hudson River, the building zig zags vertically and diagonally to preserve city side streets.

The winding feature of the structure also allows for each residential unit to enjoy natural light and air throughout the day, and many even have their very own rooftop garden. The massive 1.3 million sq ft structure features 865 residential units, commercial and storage spaces, a neighborhood market, health club, horse stables for the NYPD, and of course, a state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz dealership.
