In the Clinton neighborhood of Manhattan’s West Side, FXFOWLE has designed The Mosaic, a mixed-use three-building development consisting of two towers and a low-rise theater component.

The assemblage of buildings that accommodate residential, cultural and commercial uses. The two 300-unit apartment towers rise above a base inhabited by two separate theater companies, the Ensemble Studio Theater and the Intar Hispanic American Arts Center. Three stories of loft-like apartments are located immediately above the theaters. The residential towers are 24 stories high. Apartments on the upper floors overlook the public open space and take advantage of views to the river and of the midtown Manhattan skyline. This project is under construction and is expected to earn LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
