New York City-based Big Foot Developers have a vision for a new kind of waterfront restaurant: a glass cube that hovers above the Hudson River.

In early September, the developers unveiled designs for "The Floating Restaurant," which would be suspended above the site of the former Glenwood power plant in Yonkers, 30 minutes north of Manhattan.

The team submitted the proposal to Goren Group (the developers that are working to convert the power plant into a cultural events space). However, lead designer Cristelle Calderón De Stefano tells Business Insider that there is no word yet on whether the restaurant will come to fruition.

In the meantime, check out the designs.

"The Floating Restaurant" would hover between the former power plant's two smoke stacks, 160 feet above the river.



Tension steel cables would hang from the smoke stacks to support the structure, Calderón De Stefano says. Diners would enjoy 360-degree views of New York's skyline and the Hudson River.



Visitors would get to the restaurant through an elevator built inside one of the smoke stacks. From there, they would walk along a glass bridge to reach the 1,940-square-foot cube. The restaurant would have two levels, connected by stairs.
