360 State Street is a 300-foot (91 m) residential skyscraper completed in 2010 in New Haven, Connecticut. It is the second-tallest building in the city, and the largest apartment building in the state. DeSimone Consulting Engineers were the structural engineers on the building and it won the 2009 New York Construction - Top Project of the Year.


The mixed-use modernist building, includes 500 luxury apartments and 25,000 sq ft (2,300 m2) of retail space. Designated a "green" building by the US Green Building Council (USGBC), it is the first residential building in Connecticut to gain Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum status and includes a rooftop garden as well as a corner "pocket park" that may be developed as a day care center in the future. A full-scale food co-op occupies the building's ground floor. 360 State was constructed on the site where Shartenberg's Department Store stood from 1915 to 1962.
