Glass. Water. Light. Color. The Murano, named after the famous Italian island known for its spectacular colored glass, combines these four elements into a fluid design, making it a standout in an area of New York known for its creative edge: Long Island City. A computerized system lights the lobby walls and exterior of Murano in a different hue every hour on the hour, transforming the all-glass building into a glowing, sculptural wonder. Surrounded by a serene water feature, the Murano is a beacon of light, heralding new life, limitless possibility, and inspired living to those who like to color outside the lines.
Brilliant LED lighting effect. Innovative water feature. All-glass design. Inspired community areas. Murano is more than the sum of its parts. Its unusual architectural aspects create a seamless and singular experience designed to inspire happiness and well-being. A "green" building, the Murano utilizes green finishes throughout and eco-friendly building materials wherever possible.
