During one year in NY, I lived in the 28th floors high tower Bel-Air,
one of three Birchwood Towers in Forest Hills. In Las Vegas visit in
2011, my wife and me had room on the 60th floor Trump Tower-fantastic
experience. Nowadays, we live in the Zagreb pocket skyscraper, and
I have some good feeling for residential skyscrapers.
30 story skyscraper is one that can be multiplied. Ten of them, in
group, are located on the location near already for 25 story residential
towers, close to the Sava bank. Designed skyscrapers are the same in
concept and different in realization. All are high one hundred meters,
ground floor is representative entrance hall with shops, small restaurant
and caffe, garage etage is for 28 parking lots. Each residential etage
is modulated so might be with two huge flats (even one) and numerous
small apartments. If needed, apartments may be connected in vertical
way to achieve two (three) floor dwelling unit.
Modules are A & B and are able to be split or added
- independent: A=60 m2, A/2=30 m2, 3/8A= 22m2, 5/8A= 38m2
* dependent, in correlation with A: A'=60m2, A''=30m2
- independent: B=100m2, B/2=50m2, 3/10B=30m2, 7/10B=70m2
The tower can accommodate up to 1000 inhabitants.
On the top, skyscrapers are gradualy cut - I recalled 1916. NY code
about skyscrapers, Huge Ferriss drawings, and one magazine Abitare
Residential skyscrapers are set up in the way to supply views to river
and to mountain Sljeme. In that quite empty area there are some built
buildings, but they are saved and included in proposed 10.000 inhabitants
