Bruce Eichner’s future tower at 41 East 22nd Street has new diagrams and drawings indicating the height will be 795 feet, making it the tallest residential tower between Midtown and Lower Manhattan. The building is off the southeastern corner of Madison Square Park, and will rise in a space currently occupied by low-rises. In addition to its height, it will have a 17-foot cantilever over the adjacent 33 West 22nd Street.
With approximately 80 units, the project’s closest comparison is the neighboring One Madison, though that tower is nearly sold out. Together, the buildings will extend Midtown’s skyline south to 23rd Street. 41 East 22nd Street’s re-design is 77 feet taller than the original filings, and will rise 60 floors.
41 East 22nd Street’s ‘neighborhood designation’ is up in the air; the location is at the cross-roads of Gramercy and the Flatiron, though the ‘Madison Square Park’ label could also fit. What’s certain is that pricing will be astronomical, given the large floor-plans and relatively unobstructed views.
No completion date has been officially announced, but given the latest progression in plans, a 2014 groundbreaking seems probable.
