Echoes of its cousin—the Apple Store “Cube” on New York’s Fifth Avenue—are unmistakable in this glass wonder, also designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.

Recipient of two GBCA Building Excellence Awards, this 56,000-square-foot  structure was featured on the cover of USGlass Magazine thanks to its soaring floor-to-ceiling glass heights of 23 feet, which required the first truss-stiffened unitized curtain wall installation in the US.

Constructed with major safety precautions in a tight footprint with virtually no lay-down area on a high-traffic corner, the ethereal “glass house” serves as home to The Cheesecake Factory, Verizon Wireless, & Pizza, Spin, and WeWork, which has access to a private roof deck alongside vegetated green roof and a sophisticated blue roof drainage system.
