200 East 59th Street
Construction is now three stories above street level on the 35-story, 67-unit mixed-use tower under development at 200 East 59th Street, located on the corner of Third Avenue in Midtown East. The structure can be seen beginning to make its ascent skyward thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 490-foot-tall tower will eventually encompass 109,581 square feet. Retail space, measuring 14,861 square feet, will span the cellar through second floors. The residential units, which will be condominiums, will be located on the third through 35th floors and average 1,490 square feet apiece. Macklowe Properties is the developer and CetraRuddy is behind the design. Completion is expected in late 2017.
YIMBY can now bring you news that foundation work is underway at 200 East 59th Street, at the corner of Third Avenue on the northern edge of Midtown East, courtesy of photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Vertical_Gotham. It’s the site of a 35-story, 67-unit mixed-use building being developed by Macklowe Properties, which YIMBY recently revealed a full rendering for last week. As reported earlier, the 490-foot-tall tower will measure 109,581 square feet, of which 14,861 square feet will be utilized for retail space on the cellar through second floors. The apartments above, which will be condominiums, should average 1,490 square feet apiece. Amenities include storage for 36 bikes, a lounge, a terrace on the third floor, and a fitness center. CetraRuddy is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in late 2017.
At the intersection of the Upper East Side and Midtown East, there has been a surge of new development, starting with the newly-iconic 432 Park Avenue, by Macklowe Properties. And now we have the first full rendering of the same developer’s plans for 200 East 59th Street, designed by CetraRuddy, thanks to the YIMBY Forums, where EB-5 materials for the project have surfaced. YIMBY previously revealed the first renderings of the building back in November, but this image is the first to show the whole tower, which will feature wraparound terraces on every floor.
In the middle of 2014, Macklowe Properties closed on an assemblage on the corner of 59th Street and Third Avenue for $100 million, acquiring it from SL Green. Now, with the former structures demolished, YIMBY can reveal the first renderings of the site’s future occupant, designed by CetraRuddy, which will stand 35 stories and 490 feet tall.
