The South Ferry Plaza, also called A Lighthouse At The Tip Of The Island, was a
supertall skyscraperproposed to rise right next to the East Riveron Manhattan Islandin New York City. The building would have sat on top of the South Ferryterminal and tower Convert|1084|ft|m|0|abbr=on above street level, with 60 stories of office space. It was designed by architect Fox & Fowle Architects and Leslie E. Robertson Associates. The architects designed the building for officeuse and the skyscraper incorporated recycled marble and steelwith glassin its structure. The architectural plan had a glass dome that was supposed to be lit at night, which also contained an observation deckand three restaurants located inside the dome. In addition, the project called for the renovation of the South Ferry Terminal, including the train station so it can accommodate 100,000 people. The project would have doubled the size of Battery Park if it had proceeded, since the building included a plaza that was planned to tie in with Battery Parkvia new promenade at the tip of Manhattan. However, the project was canceled due to financial reasons.
