The developer behind the city's tallest tower, 1 World Trade Center, is now proposing the nation's largest residential tower.

Standing at 1,100 feet tall, the tower proposed by developer Larry Silverstein would be located at 520 West 41st Street.

The building will boast more floors than any other building in the city standing at 106 stories compared to the city's tallest tower, 1 World Trade, which stands at 104 stories.

According to a draft environmental-impact statement, Silverstein’s glass-draped tower would have approximately 1,400 apartment buildings with 208 affordable units.

It would also include 175,000 square feet of office space, and 300,000 square feet of retail.

If approved, construction is slated to begin in 2017, with completion expected by 2020.
