|New York, USA
Standing at nearly 330 feet tall in downtown New York City is 570 Broome, a brand-new 25-storey building nestled between bustling Soho and Hudson Square. This marvel of modern design, clad with a stunning glazed curtain wall, consists of 54 luxury boutique residential units as well as a commercial component at ground level.
The skyscraper, designed by Manhattan architectural firm builtd, is inspired by its setting: a whimsical combination of contemporary and contextual elements which define its environment.
Neolith, the pioneering brand of Sintered Stone, was specified across the whole façade, framing three-stories high expanses of glass which capture spectacular vistas of downtown and the Hudson River. The overall design is symbolic of NYC’s rich history by way of the tower’s soaring ceiling heights and a silhouette evocative of staggered cubes.
Self-cleaning facades in the sun or rain
Due to the project’s location near the heavily-congested Holland Tunnel, the client wanted to deliver a durable, low-maintenance building that could withstand physical damage. Also stain-resistant and impervious to natural and man-made atmospheric deterioration, such as UV-rays and car exhaust fumes. Neolith had all these features, proving to be the ideal material.
"We knew it would be the ideal material for this project and a great choice for a ventilated façade. With the assistance of Megaker, the makers of an inorganic, porous skeleton structure, we were able to design and document the perfect cladding system with the precision of a Swiss watch."

Unalterable and sustainable architecture
Neolith has become known as one of the safest, most hygienic and sustainable materials available to specifiers, without compromising on performance and visual appeal.
"There can be no doubt that this is a game changer in the way that we approach urban planning and construction. We believe this will have a highly positive impact on the lives of both 570 Broome’s residents and New York City citizens in general. Neolith is an ultra-hygienic, carbon neutral surfacing material that has been built over a decade of commercial and consumer specification. Hopefully this example will encourage other architects and specifiers globally to adhere to the same ESG criteria that Neolith follows and consider greener façade options for future high-rise projects."
