54-Story, 33-Unit Residential Tower Rises Into Skyline, Receives Limestone Façade At 520 Park Avenue, Upper East Side

Last month, YIMBY brought you new renderings of the 54-story, 33-unit ultra-luxury residential tower under construction at 520 Park Avenue, located on East 60th Street in Lenox Hill. The building is now between 15 and 20 stories above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Robert Walpole and ILNY, and can be seen for the first time from Central Park. Crews are also installing limestone to the structure’s western façade. The 781-foot-tall tower will encompass 251,892 square feet, and its condominium units should average an opulent 5,394 square feet apiece. The building’s amenities are all listed in our previous update. Zeckendorf Development is the developer and Robert A.M. Stern Architects is behind the design. SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.

New Renderings of 54-Story, 33-Unit Residential Tower Under Construction at 520 Park Avenue, Upper East Side

Back in December of 2015, construction was up to the third floor of the 54-story ultra-luxury residential building under development at 520 Park Avenue, located on East 60th Street in Lenox Hill. Now, construction has commenced on the tower portion of the building, and YIMBY can reveal new renderings of the limestone-clad structure. The 251,892-square-foot, 737-foot-tall tower will host 33 condominiums, averaging an incredible 5,394 square feet apiece. Units will span at least the entire floor, with the duplex and triplex penthouses consisting of the largest configurations. Amenities will include a salon, a pool, a fitness center with exercise rooms, a treatment room, a sauna and steam rooms, and a children’s playroom. There will also be guest suites, a wine cellar, private storage space, a garden, and a 21-bike storage room. Zeckendorf Development is the developer and Robert A.M. Stern Architects is behind the design, while SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.

54-Story, 33-Unit Residential Tower Rises At 520 Park Avenue, Upper East Side

YIMBY partially revealed schematics back in 2013 of Zeckendorf Development’s planned 54-story, 33-unit ultra-luxury residential tower at 520 Park Avenue (formerly 45 East 60th Street), in Lenox Hill. Later that year, demolition wrapped up on the site’s old low-rise structures. Since then, work has focused on building the project’s foundation. In recent months, however, the tower has finally begun to rise, as seen in these photos by Tectonic, and concrete is now being poured for the fourth floor. Robert A.M. Stern Architects is designing the limestone-clad structure, which will eventually host some of New York’s most opulent condominiums. Completion is currently expected in 2017.
