You saw it right! This weird U-shaped building in New York is going to be the ‘longest’ in the world

Having a first glimpse of this building might make you feel like you’re drunk. But trust your power of perception, because what you just saw is not an ‘augmented reality’.

Having a first glimpse of this building might make you feel like you’re drunk. But trust your power of perception, because what you just saw is not an ‘augmented reality’. 

The Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty and the former World Trade Center already make up the picturesque view from the skyscrapers of the New York City. This new addition will change the view forever. 

India Tv - The Big Bend

The Big Bend

This titanic U-shaped structure ‘The Big Bend’ will be the World’s Longest Building when it’ll be done. The length of the building will be measuring 4,000 ft, which will make it the longest building in the world. If the length of this building is fully stretched out, it will be twice as much as world’s tallest building. 

Currently, Burj Khalifa owes the title of World’s tallest building with a height of 2,722 ft. But once ‘The Big Bend’ is completed, Burj Khalifa will drop to the second place. Other skyscrapers Shanghai Towers (2,070 ft) and One World Trade Center (1,790 ft) will also lose their places. 

The architectural details of the building has not been revealed yet. But one amazing detail of the building has been out. It will consist of a ‘lift’ that can travel the curved end of the building as well. 

This marvellous U-shaped building will soon be one of the most luxurious skyscrapers of New York City. The planning proposal of the building has not been approved yet. Chances are that it might not happen in reality.
