The 2000’ Television Transmission Tower proposed for Jersey City, NJ has three tiers, with a 280 feet triangle shape footprint. The tower design was developed to be accessible to the public. Three platforms are provided at 860 feet, 1,500 feet, and 1,900 feet. The sculptural form changes appearance as the viewer changes vantage points – engaging the viewer. In this design, there are no reflective or transparent surfaces, which is important to birds. This design also introduces surface discontinuities at regular intervals, which will avoid formation of large sheets of ice.
