Located directly on the Danube Canal, the ensemble consists of three cubics, flexibly planned residential towers that seem to communicate with each other, thereby dissolving the transition between inside and outside. Sven Thorissen (Director and Architect MVRDV, Rotterdam) highlights the differentiated building volume, the well-organized apartment layouts, and the diversity of (communal) outdoor spaces as exemplary.

Like a neighbor that has always been around, The Bryant blends considerately into the surrounding high-rise landscape of Midtown Manhattan. It impresses with its clear design vocabulary and elegance, combined with exemplary understatement. Melkan Gürsel (Architect / Partner Tabanlioglu Architects) emphasizes that the building conveys a sense of integrity.

For Peter Cachola Schmal (Director Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt/Main), it's “a very welcoming and pleasant architecture for a vertical courthouse with innovative typology.”
