A fast pace city revival on the right side of right bank of the Hudson River gave birth to many new high-rises.
The 38 floors apartment tower sitting on the 7 story tall podium, Morgan at Provost Square is a first phase of the small scale vertical city concept planned to encompass performing arts center, pedestrian plaza roof terraces and garages.
The architectural expression suits the urban context of a building located between the new downtown and the historic one. Simplistic in design, the building is clad in red and orange brick and glazed with blue tinted glass framed with gray mullions. Orderly facade rhythm is interrupted only by a few glazed extensions, and play of brick and glass parapets on the facade screens, giving this large surface livelier character. A modernized version of rusticated walls appears in form of long, vertical strips shyly dividing the building masses.
