The “Centrale”, designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli, is Ceruzzi Properties’ first luxury supertall residential condominium tower in Manhattan. As exterior wall consultants, Vidaris took an active role in designing the various components of the exterior wall, monitoring visual and performance mock-ups of wall assemblies, as well as monitoring fabrication and on-site erection of wall panels. The 64-story tower encompasses 270,000 gross square feet, with 4,588 square feet of retail at the ground level and 124 condominium units above. The terra-cotta infused glass façade, staggered setbacks, and geometrically shimmering screen wall along the podium grant this project a unique aesthetic in an ever-changing Manhattan skyline. Vidaris also provided energy code progress inspection services for the project.
