When completed, the 1000 unit 2.3 million unit apartment building was the tallest ever built in New Jersey. The complex consists of three 44-story octagonal residential towers on top of a 12-story base structure which has its own shopping mall, cinema, health club and pools. The apartment complex is so large that according to the 2010 Census, most of the population of Guttenberg resides in the Galaxy. The design offers dramatic views of Manhattan across the Hudson River and features a distinctive formal entrance drive between the three buildings, which are entered at the middle of the towers' height. A recreational plaza sits atop the base structure between the buildings.
