Construction has topped out on 3 Sutton Place, an 847-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 430 East 58th Street in Midtown East. Designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect, the 62-story tower will contain 121 residential units. The project site is located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue.
Recent photographs from Roosevelt Island reveal the extent of the prominence the slender reinforced concrete superstructure has achieved over the Sutton Place neighborhood. The vertically oriented grid of white stone paneling and floor-to-ceiling glass is continuing to rise, further accentuating the building’s height.
Not much about the potential amenities has been disclosed. However, the building’s biggest draw is sure to be the 360-degree views that will be available to a significant percentage of occupants, given the vertical prominence of the skyscraper over the neighboring buildings. Residents will have vistas of Central Park, the Midtown skyline, and the nearby Queensboro Bridge, with sight lines extending all the way down to Lower Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn.
No official renderings of 430 East 58th Street have been released since Thomas Juul-Hansen was called to redesign the project, which was originally architected by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners. The only illustration available is the below depiction of the crown with its stepped chamfering, though it remains to be seen whether or not the building will ultimately culminate with this flourish.
YIMBY expects 430 East 58th Street to be finished and open sometime in 2021. A formal date has not been publicly announced nor heard of.
