no space to construct out."If we handle to flex our structure instead of flexing the zoning rules of New york city, we would have the ability to develop among the most prominent buildings in Manhattan," checks out the structure proposition on Oiio's website.The designer
of the job, Ioannis Oiaonomou, was inspired to create the U-shaped structure after learning that a business created an elevator that not only moves vertically, however also horizontally.The Big Bend is simply

is currently looking for financial investments.
