Radio Tower and Hotel
Design: MVRDV
Location: 2420 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, USA

Radio Tower & Hotel reflects the diversity and vibrancy of the existing fabric and communities in New York City?s Washington Heights neighborhood. Located on Amsterdam Avenue between 180th and 181st Street, the 22-story mixed-use high-rise combines hotel, retail, and office functions. The brick-clad design takes the typical composition of a small block in the neighborhood, pulls it apart and then reassembles it into an asymmetrical stack of colorful boxes with openings and roof terraces.

Developer Youngwoo & Associates challenged MVRDV to design an innovative project that accommodates a large volume of program while fitting the surrounding context – a challenge that was solved through the project’s distinctive massing and colorful exterior.
The design of building draws inspiration from the diversity and vibrancy of the existing neighborhood, which is home to a mix of families, creative professionals, and institutions.

Each of the eight boxes are being finished in a different color ceramic brick to create carefully detailed and beautiful fac?ades that draw hues from street-level storefronts up to the sky. Combined, the building?s external elements form a condensation of the characteristics unique to Washington Heights? existing urban fabric.
