Construction is now seven stories above street level on the 42-story, 429-unit mixed-use building under development at 212 East 44th Street (a.k.a. 222 East 44th Street), in Midtown East. The structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project will measure 361,354 square feet and rise 556 feet above street level.
There will be 7,162 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by residential units on the seventh through 41st floors. The apartments, which will be rentals, should average 826 square feet apiece. Twenty percent, or 87 units, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. BLDG Management is the developer and Handel Architects is the design architect. SLCE Architects is the executive architect and completion is expected in 2017.
