There’s a new skyscraper to look forward to in NoMad, Manhattan. Permits have been approved for the construction of the Rockefeller Group’s 639-foot-tall building at 30 East 29th Street. This news comes nearly four months after YIMBY obtained the building’s early renderings, with design by CetraRuddy.
The condition of the site has been primed for construction as well, with an image by JC Heights verifying that demolition crews have cleared the prior building.
The 46-story building will yield 226,350 square feet, with 167,700 square feet dedicated to residential use. The highest floors will rises 599 feet above ground, dedicated to mechanical use.
123 residences will be created, indicating condominiums. Three duplexes will occupy floors 40-43, and each will have more than one terrace. Other units will range from studio size, up to four-bedrooms.
Residents will have access to a pool, fitness center, squash room, lobby, and space for 70 bicycles. An amenities level on the 31st floor will include two sizable terraces, and a 960 square foot entertainment space between them.
The main entrance features eight deep brown terracotta columns. Chevrons are common across the entire building, rising from the bottom to the top. The building uses Art Deco styling for a unique, minimalist design.
With demolition finished, construction can start as soon as the crews arrive on site. The estimated completion date has yet to be announced.
