A Giant U-Shaped Skyscraper Designed for New York Would Be the Longest Building in the World

Giant U-Shaped Skyscraper for New York

Manhattan developers keep building skyscrapers taller and taller, but Greek architect Ioannis Oikonomou hopes to break a new kind of record.

His firm, Oiio Studio, has designed a U-shaped tower called the "Big Bend" that aims to become, what Oikonomou calls, "the world's longest building".

If you were measure from end to end of the U, which would total approximately 4,000 feet (1,220 metres).

The design calls for a super-tall, skinny skyscraper bent in half, to form what looks like the first drop of a roller coaster.

From the footpath to the building's peak, it would stretch about 200 feet (61 metres) taller than One World Trade Center, the largest tower in the city.

For now, the Big Bend is merely a design. Oikonomou tells Business Insider he has sent the design to a few developers, and is currently seeking investment.

The residential building would be located on the southern border of Central Park, an area that's known as 'Billionaire's Row' and contains many luxury skyscrapers.

Oikonomou is confident that plans for the Big Bend could move forward since many developers will do whatever it takes to get a better return on investment, he says. In a huge skyscraper that doesn't take up much space, more people would pay mortgages or rent.
