Architects should call their doctor if their new building lasts for more than 4 hours.
There's nothing subtle about Jared Kushner's new building that's he's proposing to build on New York City's famous 5th Avenue. Designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect, Zaha Hadid, the new building looks like the perfect place to relocate the Eye of Sauron, but Trump's son-in-law has a different vision in mind.
Plans for the new building located at 666 5th Avenue (yes, that's the real address) include a mixed property space with retail, offices and condos and would soar more than 1,400 feet above New York City streets.
The $7.5 billion project is seeking investors, which the Wall Street Journal reports could create headaches for Kushner. After Trump won the presidency last November, businesses associated with Trump have come under closer scrutiny to determine if there might be any violations of the Emoluments clause of the Constitution.
The project would necessitate stripping down the 60-year-old building currently sitting on the property all the way down to its steel structure and adding an additional 40 floors to it.
If Kushner does find the money needed for the project, it would still be some time before it's completed. The new skyscraper could join the New York City skyline in 2025.
