With the construction of windjumps and other wind-powered towers in the city, the skyline has undergone a transformation.
But as the skyline shifts, the sky’s color and light will also change.
The city’s newest skyscraper, the iconic tower at 56th Street and Madison Avenue, will be known as Windjammer Condominiums.
Windjammers are small towers that use wind power to produce lift and deflect the sunlight.
But the city is looking to make the towers more efficient by incorporating wind energy into the construction process.
The windjams will be the centerpiece of a complex of structures called the Manhattan Condominium complex, which will be a high-rise residential development.
The towers will be located at 57th Street between Sixth and Eighth Avenues, with the majority of the towers located in the Midtown neighborhood.
The tower will be called Windjamper.
In a city that has seen a proliferation of towers, many residents are concerned about the impact of wind-generated noise on their homes.
But with Windjamber condominium projects, the city will be taking steps to mitigate that impact, said Daniel M. Miller, the chief operating officer for the New York City Department of Buildings.
The New York Building Department, the Department of Energy, the New Yorkers for Wind and Solar Development, the Windjambers for New York, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the New Deal Condominium Investment Trust will work with developers to design and build wind-harvesting towers that will be less energy intensive.
For the project, the City of New York is partnering with New York Construction Materials and the developer to build a wind turbine system in each tower.
The units will generate energy for the condominium tower by converting sunlight reflected from the sun and the wind into electricity, which is then sold to the grid.
The developers will sell the electricity back to New York Power.
The apartments will be designed to withstand wind gusts of up to 120 mph and the tower will have windows to protect residents from the wind.
“The project is designed to be resilient to wind speeds that are over 80 miles per hour and to withstand winds that reach 120 mph,” Miller said.
“All the buildings are designed to have windows, so the building can withstand wind speeds as high as 120 mph.”
The windjammers will have an energy efficiency rating of 25 percent and will be insulated with solar panels.
The condominium project is part of the citys effort to encourage the installation of wind turbines in high-density developments and the development of renewable energy.
The Windjamers will be built on the land of the former Manhattan Condo Co., a building site in the heart of Midtown Manhattan that once housed the first skyscraper.
The company closed its doors in 2002.
Miller said that Windjampers were designed to generate power and have a design that was not only aesthetically pleasing, but also energy efficient.
The buildings will also be built to withstand storm surges, and the towers will not have elevators or ramps, Miller said, because they will be constructed of steel, which provides a strong foundation for the towers.
“They’re designed to make sure the towers are designed with structural integrity and to provide an energy-efficient and safe environment for the residents,” Miller added.
The project will be complete by 2021, Miller added, and will include a community center, residential and retail areas, a community park, a fitness center, a playground, and a parking garage.
“Our goal is to have these towers by the end of 2021,” Miller told FoxNews.com.
“We want to see the tower project become a catalyst for other buildings to come to the Mid-town neighborhood.”
The towers are slated to open to the public in 2021.
A new Windjamming community will also open in 2019, said Miller.
