41 East 22nd Street has flown under the radar for the past several months, but new images give a better look at what Continuum Company‘s tower will eventually look like, as the previous ‘renderings’ lacked most details. While the zoning diagrams are not encompassing of all perspectives, the accompanying information gives a more complete look at the development’s specifications. Goldstein Hill & West is the architect of record.
The skyscraper will rise 777 feet to its pinnacle, becoming the tallest building between Lower Manhattan and Midtown; 41 East 22nd will stand over 150 feet taller than its neighbor One Madison, which will lose a significant portion of its eastern views.
While the height of 41 East 22nd Street has been anticipated, the building’s form has remained somewhat more mysterious, and the design was initially compared to a champagne flute. The similarities are there, but the overall shape seems to be more ‘shard’-like, as the tower’s upper floors end in a beveled apex.
With 60 floors, the building will be entirely residential. Permits indicate it will measure 372,684 square feet in total, and the Schedule A has the full run-down on floor-by-floor details; the basement will come with 16 parking spaces, and the first of the tower’s residences will be located on the sixth level.
The building will have 81 units, with full-floor residences beginning on the 49th level, and a 8,892 square foot duplex will span the 58th and 59th floors. Given the size of the upper-most penthouse — and its unparalleled views — it seems that the unit could contend for the title of ‘most expensive condominium below 23rd Street,’ though the recent transactions at both Walker Tower and One Madison will be difficult marks to beat.
No completion date for 41 East 22nd Street has been announced, but demolition permits for the existing structures were issued yesterday, and the green netting of doom went up earlier this year; evidently, progress is now underway.
