Curbed — "Vote for NYC’s best building of 2019!"

"Studio Gang’s 40 Tenth Avenue—once known as “Solar Carve”—wrapped up in 2019 and is a striking new addition to the collection of glassy towers that hug the High Line. It’s designed in such a way so that the structure will not cast shadows on the adjacent park, and the glass facade—which includes some three-dimensional pieces—will have less of the glare and solar heat issues typically found in those buildings. (The glass pieces are even angled in such a way to reduce bird strikes—how thoughtful."
