Facts

  • Confucius Plaza was constructed as a multi-use apartment tower at the end of the Manhattan Bridge, where the constantly expanding Chinatown and the Lower East Side meet.
  • The facade is of uniform brown brick cladding, and the massing is enhanced by protruding portions and set-backs.
  • On the plaza in front of the building is a statue of the Chinese philosopher Confucius by Liu Shih.
  • In addition to the 762 apartments, the development also includes a school (the Public School 124), shops and community space as well as a day-care center. There is also an underground parking facility.
  • Tallest building in Chinatown.
  • The tower complex forms a large arc facing south-east, with the 44-storey eastern portion of the entity -- on the Manhattan Bridge side -- towering over the lower, 19-storey mass facing the Bowery and Chatham Square (near which the previously tallest apartment development in Chinatown, the The Chatham Towers, is located).
