One Northside Piers

From a distance, One Northside Piers, a new luxury condo tower on the Williamsburg waterfront, might look a lot like other glass-and-aluminum-clad residential towers, but at closer look reveals a complex window wall system designed by FXFowle Architects. The unitized systems, consisting of two aluminum window and slab cover typologies, is a technique to break up the mass of the building, making it appear taller and thinner, as well as more visually intriguing.
