The exterior of 30 East 31st Street in NoMad is getting closer to completion. Located between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, the 39-story, 479-foot-tall residential property is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and is being developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate. Reuveni Real Estate is marketing the 42 units, which will be spread across more than 70,000 square feet and average 1,700 square feet apiece. Prices range from $1.65 million to upward of $12 million.
Recent photos from Tectonic show the building’s decorative white aluminum lattice pattern nearly complete.
Most of the main northern elevation has been clad with the signature white paneling and floor-to-ceiling glass. The array of triangular window openings of the upper floors of the residential edifice is more accentuated with the nearly completed exterior. Meanwhile, the curtain wall on the wider eastern and western profiles is climbing higher toward the roof parapet. The pattern for the diamond lattice has been etched into the flat reinforced concrete walls and awaits the installation of the finished pieces. The main entrance along East 31st Street will be one of the last sections of the building to wrap up. Most of the mechanical equipment above the last residence will be hidden under the roofline, concealed within the elegant geometric design of the crown.
The lower levels will provide space for a 1,600-square-foot commercial banquet hall, while the second floor and basement are planned to house the amenities, which include a lounge with a viewing garden, a private dining room with an en-suite catering kitchen, and a fitness center. The top six stories are designed for two full-floor units, a duplex penthouse, and a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath unit.
30 East 31st Street looks like it could finish by the end of the year, or sometime in the first half of 2021 at the latest.
