The first curtain wall sections have begun installation at 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, the 20th building on our countdown of the tallest projects in the city. The 800-foot-tall Midtown East residential skyscraper is designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate, with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect.
Located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue, 430 East 58th Street’s reinforced concrete superstructure is becoming increasingly prominent over the neighborhood and can be clearly seen from across the East River. Photos below show the superstructure beginning to surpass its neighbors. The repetitive shape of the floor plates allows construction to ascend at its current rapid pace. The finished product won’t reach the echelon of the supertalls of Billionaires’ Row, but it will still have a dramatic presence on the Midtown skyline along the East River.
The envelope consists of large neutral-colored stone panels with chamfered corners and glass that will span more than one floor. Thin vertical black lines are found in between each multi-story window and could go all the way to the top of the roof parapet.
It is unclear as to why no official updated rendering has been released for the project. Nonetheless, future residents of the skyscraper will be treated to plenty of natural light, views of the East River, the Queensboro Bridge, Central Park to the north, Lower Manhattan to the south, and the Long Island City and Midtown skylines.
A completion date for 430 East 58th Street has not been announced yet, though it is possible that the complex will finish in 2021.
