Completed in 1986, Metropolitan Tower's sheer "frameless" glass façade and wedged shaped form became an instantly recognized icon for high end residential architecture. Its angular form orientates a large amount of the apartments to views of Central Park. The building's program also includes 100,000 sf of commercial office space, retail, residential amenities and onsite parking.
