New York City will soon be home to the world’s longest building, The Big Bend.

This U-shaped skyscraper will stretch 1,200m from end to end, redefining the city’s iconic skyline. The innovative structure, if laid out straight, would be nearly twice the height of the world’s tallest buildings, surpassing Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which stands at 830m.

The Big Bend, once completed, will become a major landmark and tourist attraction. Its unique shape will dramatically alter New York’s skyline, making the Empire State Building, which is 1,454 feet tall including its antenna, look small in comparison. The building will feature a sleek, glass-lined design and a lift that travels the entire length, even curving at the top.

Located near Central Park, The Big Bend will join the ranks of luxury skyscrapers on Billionaires’ Row, a famous area known for its tall, elegant buildings. This ambitious project aims to showcase unmatched luxury and height, reflecting Manhattan’s reputation for architectural innovation and grandeur.

The developers behind The Big Bend are excited to bring this new marvel to life, adding a fresh chapter to New York’s rich architectural history.

Details about other features of the building will be revealed later, but it’s clear that The Big Bend will be a stunning addition to the city that never sleeps.
