The American Copper Buildings at 626 First Avenue, designed by SHoP Architects, is a striking example of modern architecture blending with luxury living in Manhattan. This unique development, known for its copper-clad towers connected by a three-story skybridge, offers residents unparalleled amenities and views of the New York City skyline, including the Empire State Building and the East River.
The property features two lobbies with 25-foot ceilings, custom lighting, and wood paneling, showcasing the development's attention to detail and luxury. Apartments range from studios to three-bedroom units, with finishes including oak flooring, Miele appliances, marble countertops, and backsplashes in kitchens.
Amenities span nearly 60,000 square feet and include a rooftop infinity pool, an indoor 75-foot skybridge lap pool, a Turkish-style hammam, a fitness center with a climbing wall, and a children’s playroom, among others. The skybridge itself is a notable feature, housing a pool, whirlpool, and lounge, marking it as the first of its kind in New York City in over 80 years and has received architectural praise and awards for its innovative design.
