Given that the new building is about to match the height of Steinway Hall, the new structure is almost 16 stories in height. Steinway Hall will contain 12 of the development’s 58 condominium residential units. YIMBY last checked in on the project in September 2016, when the SHoP Architects-designed tower had reached seven stories.
Located on Billionaires’ Row between Sixth and Seventh avenues, it will, when complete, will rise 82 marketed stories to 1,428 feet. Calculations based on the current building permit, which has not changed since June, show that residential units will average over 4,521 square feet.
The permit also shows 54,158 square feet of commercial space. Retail will stretch from the cellar to the fourth floor. The fifth floor will have offices.
JDS Development Group and the Property Markets Group are the co-developers. Completion had been slated for early 2018.
