50 West Street is a 64-story, 778 ft (237 m) tall mixed-use retail and residential condominium tower developed by Time Equities Inc. in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It contains 191 residential units.
Designed by architect Helmut Jahn, known for works such as the Messeturm in Frankfurt, CitySpire, the Park Avenue Tower and 425 Lexington Avenue in New York City. The tower of curved glass provides panoramic views of New York Harbor. In order to achieve a possible Gold LEED rating, the building includes sustainable technologies, such as a green roof, water-efficient plumbing fixtures, automated blinds and energy control systems.
The base of the building is bowed outwards in a curved cantilever, adding a further sensation of verticality, with a view to open up space for the Ward’s Walk between the building and the Battery Garage immediately to the south.
