Construction Update: 241 Fifth Avenue

241 Fifth Avenue is just about complete, and the project makes great filler. The facade has come quite a ways since the last update on the building from October. Per New York City Department of Building permits the tower rises 210 feet, and will have 46 residential units. Also on the DOB page of the project is a partial stop-work order filed on December 12th, though the violation looks to be minor.

The website for 241 Fifth gives no details on when occupancy is expected, and also leaves unit pricing up in the air. Given the building’s location–not quite Chelsea, not really Midtown, but close to Madison Square Park–it will likely be quite expensive.

  1. This building frustrates me. Not because of its design, which I love (and in fact from the street I never see that quit attractive top part), but because of what it says about our zoning code. We’re not even allowed to build as tall in midtown Manhattan (okay, maybe just outside of it) as nearly 100 years ago.

  2. New York’s zoning laws needs to be updated if we’re going to compete with emerging Asian mega-metropolises.

  3. I agree with both comments, but tall buildings do not make a great city–as shown by the comparison of the various Chinese mega-cities with places like Paris, Prague, or D.C. That being said, Midtown should definitely be pushing the envelope when it comes to new construction!
