A French firm is reportedly proposing a 2,400 foot residential and commercial building that would tower over Roosevelt Island while absorbing more carbon than it puts out.
The project is called Mandragore New York City by the firm Rescubika Creations.
Floors in the building would be covered with live trees and lush vegetation. The base of the building resembles a cruise ship with a wavy tower that would be seen across the city.
