The yellow safety cocoon has been installed around the perimeter of the floor plates at 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, as construction of the 800-foot-tall skyscraper rises above Midtown East. Located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue, the formwork has surpassed the parapets of the adjacent buildings and is cantilevered out over the structure’s eastern neighbor. The project is being designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the executive architect on the project.
New photos show workers installing each piece of the perimeter cocoon. It appears that the main northern elevation will feature a grid of large square windows that could repeat itself to the top of the building.
430 East 58th Street will become the tallest structure in the neighborhood when it tops off, most likely in the second half of 2020. So far the massing of the reinforced concrete structure appears to have a simple and orthodox design, one that deviates from the project’s outdated renderings. This previous version by Foster + Partners, which is featured in the main rendering, nonetheless still offers an idea of the structure’s scope and prominence over the nearby East River. The best viewpoint to see the rise and topping off of 430 East 58th Street will be from the southern section of the waterfront promenade of Roosevelt Island.
A completion date for 430 West 58th Street has not been announced, but it should likely be finished in 2021.
