About Crystal City:
Its central crystalline tower, at 548 feet, is the tallest multi-use building in Decentraland. The 16-acre Crystal City will host offices, shops, galleries, and events as well as the highest observation deck in Decentraland, giving businesses, retailers, and creators the opportunity to lease spaces in the towers, marketplace and event area. Brands may also lease open parcels to develop their own unique HQ structures.
Designed by the young, visionary architect Felipe Escudero of Estudio Felipe Escudero for LEDY, a leading metaverse developer, and Decent Amusements, the manager of the district, Crystal City breaks through the limitations of the contemporary physical world. By defying gravity and material properties, it offers a transcendent, immersive experience that can only exist in the digital world.
Crystal City will allow artists, creators, and businesses to lease space at affordable rates. Developers and tenants can then use their imaginations to create their own fantastical spaces.
Having become enamored with Crystal City while designing it, Felipe Escudero will house a studio and gallery in a structure of his own design that resembles an enormous, floating glacier near the towers. Gallery OBIO will showcase Escudero’s recently launched OBIO projects that mix music and videos with fashion and objects.
Crystal City also partnered with Diverge high-end wearables for the launch event and provided its Crystal Rock for the Diverge outstanding digital fashion and NFTs gallery.
“Crystal City design is meant to inspire wonder and spark creativity. It will be a major new landmark in the metaverse, and with constant new experiences and events will become a destination for social interaction, discovery, and exploration.” said LEDY co-founder Mark D’Andrea.
“We wanted to turn the Central Marketplace district into something spectacular,” said Rob Dixon of Decent Amusements, “and Felipe and LEDY have delivered. With cutting-edge design and common services for tenants, this will be a great place for any company or creator to build their presence in the metaverse.”
