Logical, opulent, and poignant, Baccarat Hotel & Residences successfully dialogues a vertical transition from its lively street frontage near the Museum of Modern Art to the amenity-clad aerial domain of luxurious Midtown skyscrapers. The tower is notable for its structural system, which is showcased through diametrically opposed cladding systems; east–west elevations consist of jet-black paneling and provide primary support for the building, while the others embrace transparency and an open face to the city.
