The concave form of the Sven tower is shaped to create a subtle expression while being deferential to the historic Clock Tower.

Sven is a new 710-foot tall residential tower situated adjacent to the historic Long Island City Clock Tower in Queens. In addition to over 950 residential units, the tower will include an outdoor pool, fitness center, resident’s library, co-working space, children’s playroom, and a demonstration kitchen. The Clock Tower, which is landmarked, is being renovated and restored, and will include 50,000 sq.ft. of modern commercial and retail space.

The new tower’s form, accentuated by a gently sweeping concave facade, visually embraces the landmarked historic clock tower and creates a formal and material dialog between the two buildings. The main residential entrance, facing face Dutch Kills Green Park, will borrow from the grandness of the renovated Clock Tower building, where it will be located. Directly north of the tower, half an acre of public park space is being created.
