The Offshore Towers utilize the Landboxes land reclamation system to expand the built-up area of Manhattan and protect it from future storms. The Landbox serves as a prefabricated foundation for the construction of towers and other offshore buildings, while also creating new green spaces necessary for the well-being of citizens and to safeguard the area from future storms. It is integrated with projects like the Big U, which aims to shield Manhattan from storms by extending the buffer zone.
Landboxes contributes to the upgrading of the city by serving as a hub for new infrastructure networks that can be installed within the hollow concrete caisson. These networks can include last-mile logistics, indoor farming facilities, waste management, transportation hubs, and many others.
