New-York-based Big Foot Developers have unveiled speculative designs for The Floating Restaurant, a glass cube restaurant that could hang between two smokestacks at the historic Glenwood power plant over the Hudson River in the Yonkers neighborhood of New York City.

With forest on the riverbank, the water below, and green space inside the restaurant, the project aims to blend architecture and nature while having a minimal impact on the view of the site.

The floors walls, and ceiling of the construction will be made of glass, and the entirety of the restaurant will be suspended by tension steel cables.

Correction Update: The article has been updated to reflect that the Floating Restaurant is a speculative, independent design proposal and will not be built.
