The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) has recognized two high-rise structures designed by DeSimone Consulting Engineers as part of the 2020 Award of Excellence competition.
The winning projects include Zaha Hadid’s iconic One Thousand Museum residential tower in Miami and ARO, a high-end rental development in Midtown Manhattan designed by CetraRuddy.
As winners of the Best Tall Building category for structures standing 200-299 meters, One Thousand Museum and ARO will go on to compete in the respective “Best in Category” distinctions at the CTBUH 2020 Tall + Urban Innovation Conference that take place April 5-7th in Chicago, Illinois.
“DeSimone is honored to be acknowledged by CTBUH for these remarkable projects,” said Stephen DeSimone, President and CEO of DeSimone Consulting Engineers. “We are excited to continue our role in innovative design by using creativity and complex engineering to bring unique architectural visions to life.”
Designed in collaboration by Zaha Hadid, ODP Architects, and DeSimone Consulting Engineers, One Thousand Museum is a 62-story, 709-foot tower completed earlier this year.
ARO at 242 West 53rd Street is a new 62-story building.
