Architect proposes 700-foot timber tower for the Central Park reservoir

Architects sure do love to come up with outlandish proposals for New York City buildings—remember the Big Bend? Or the ornate, 102-story Billionaires’ Row tower? Or the skyscraper hanging from an asteroid? The likelihood of any of these projects coming to fruition is slimmer than a Slim Jim, but that doesn’t stop architects from dreaming ‘em up.

Which brings us to the latest far-out thought experiment: DFA Studio has proposed what it’s calling Central Park Tower (no relation to the Extell supertall), a 712-foot structure made from prefabricated timber that would sit—here’s the kicker—in the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park.
