Toll Brothers City Living’s new building at 160 East 22nd Street is nearing exterior completion; since the last update on the project, it has topped-out, and most of the facade has now been installed. The building stands 21 floors and holds a total of 81 units, and the architect is Perkins Eastman.
160 East 22nd Street is at the forefront of the cantilever craze that is now sweeping Manhattan; the southern portion of the tower sits above two adjacent townhomes, and marks one of the most impressive overhangs in New York City to date, at 25 feet.
Besides the application of forward-thinking structural design, 160 East 22nd Street is fairly subdued in its facade, and melds modern and traditional elements into a visually coherent final product. Combining irregularly patterned windows with classic Indiana limestone works in the building’s favor, and harkens to the BKSK-designed 25 Bond Street, which is visually similar – though far shorter.
Completion of 160 East 22nd is expected in 2014.
