Sliver building

Sliver building

Sliver buildings are tall slender buildings constructed on lots with a narrow frontage, typically 45 feet or less. Over the past decade, one of the most remarkable advances in tall building design has been their construction to unprecedented slenderness ratios.

The now defunct New York City Board of Estimate banned these type of structures from many residential zoning districts in New York City in 1983, after residents objected to their construction. The resurgence of the real estate market there has led to a resurgence of these buildings, now constructed in commercial districts.
