New York’s iconic Chrysler Building is about to get a makeover.
The building is slated to open to the public at the end of March.
The new buildings project is expected to be a beacon for future development in Manhattan, according to the Associated Press.
The Chrysler Building will be one of the first major developments to come online in Manhattan.
The site includes retail and office space.
The first tower will be completed in mid-2020.
New York Times reporter Mark Berman spoke with architect Robert Zink about the building and its plans.
“It will be the tallest building in the world, and it’s going to be beautiful,” Zink told Berman.
“I’m really excited about it.
It’s the tallest apartment building in America.”
The Chrysler is the largest building in Manhattan and has an estimated 1,000 apartments.
Construction began in 2009 and the first unit is slated for completion in 2021.
