Exterior work is getting closer to completion on Rose Hill, a 639-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 30 East 29th Street in NoMad. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Rockefeller Group, the topped out 45-story tower will contain 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate. The envelope features Art Deco inspired appointments, setting it apart from other new developments in the neighborhood.
In addition to the chevron pattern on the dark brown vertical panels that run the height of the structure, the voids above the ground floor feature a gold-colored motif of diagonal lines atop mesh grilles. Topping the edifice is a sculpted tiered crown. These elements combine for a distinctive aesthetic that is at once contemporary and classic in appearance.
Work is also progressing on the railings and ceilings above the stack of balconies that flank the final levels of Rose Hill. The mechanical hoist is still attached to the southern elevation of the reinforced concrete superstructure.
The southern side that faces toward Madison Square Park holds the core of the structure and will be disguised behind the curtain wall and large floor-to-ceiling glass corners on both sides.
Rose Hill’s main northern profile, which also features a subtle western cantilever, features the most glass and is neatly arranged in a dense vertically stretched grid.
Sales have launched for the homes, which range from one- to four-bedroom units and start at $1.385 million. Closings are commencing this fall.
Rose Hill is slated to be completed in January 2021.
