The design of the building consisted of 12 four-storey cubes stacked on top of one another, cantilevered off a central concrete column standing above an 8-storey base. The slender concrete core would contain elevators, fire stairs and risers for plumbing and power. The base was intended to hold a cultural space, such as a museum. The lowest two cubes would hold offices, while the upper 10 cubes were planned to serve as individual residences. Each private cube would consist of about 10,336 square feet (960 m2) of area, as well as an outdoor garden. The residences each had a cost starting at $US29 million, with the top cube costing $US59 million, making them some of the most expensive condominiums in New York City. The project was canceled on April 16, 2008 in the wake of a declining real estate market.
