Back in June, YIMBY uncovered the first full renderings for a new condominium tower that will rise at 15 East 30th Street, or 126 Madison Avenue, in Midtown South. At the time, excavation was just wrapping up. Now, the latest photos from JC_Heights show that foundation work is complete, which means the 51-story and 756-foot-tall tower should soon begin climbing into the skyline.
Applications for 15 East 30th Street were filed with the DOB back in September of 2014, and YIMBY posted initial images in early 2015. Since the first permits were pulled, the tower’s height has been reduced slightly, falling from 53 floors and 825 feet down to the current 51 stories and 756 feet.
The tower will total just over 300,000 square feet in all, with a 7,500 square-foot retail component on the ground floor divided between frontages on East 30th Street, and another with an address of 126 Madison Avenue. Above, about 295,000 square feet will be divided amongst 180 condominiums, averaging over 1,600 square feet apiece.
Handel Architects is designing the building, and progress since July has been significant, with the above shot from ILNY giving a reference point. Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are the site’s developers, and completion is expected by the end of 2019.
