Here’s what the design and construction team on New York’s premier addresses, Atelier, had to say about Oldcastle Glass.

The Moinian Group—owners and developers of Atelier—are one of the country’s largest privately held real estate firms. Moinian has been credited with transforming the New York City skyline. So when he sought to develop a 45-story luxury high-rise in Manhattan, they called on some of the best in the business. Costas Kondylis, architect and principal of Costas Kondylis Partners, is the man responsible for designing some of the most noteworthy skyscrapers in Manhattan. Israel Berger, principal of Israel Berger & Associates, is a recognized expert in building envelope technologies.
