In an era of iconic skyscrapers, Nassau brings the qualities of residential living to a neighborhood populated by office towers. Along the tower's height, the volume edges are fragmented through an undulation of terraces. This identifies the building among the surrounding two-dimensional envelopes and provides exterior space unaccustomed to the Financial District's skyscrapers. A rooftop tree garden characterizes the building's pinnacle, capped like a natural version of the Woolworth peak.
