Machinery is on-site and excavation is about to begin at 45 East 60th Street, which will host Stern’s third-tallest skyscraper in Manhattan. Developed by the Zeckendorfs, the tower will eventually soar 780 feet. The building will integrate a minor cantilever over its eastern neighbor, but the overhang will be minimal, and its vertical profile will barely be impacted.
With 45 East 60th Street and 220 Central Park South both underway, Stern may become the undisputed champion of luxury starchitecture; combined with 15 Central Park West, the trio of towers should become the most expensive buildings in the entire city. While the 57th Street supertalls may have height, Stern’s structures have the benefit of location.
45 East 60th Street will eventually hold 40 units, and completion is set for 2015.
