Façade installation is progressing on 3 Sutton Place, a 847-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 430 East 58th Street in Midtown East and number 15 on our countdown of the tallest construction projects underway in New York. Designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect, the 62-story tower is located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue and will yield a total of 121 residential units. The site is a short distance away from the East River and the Sutton Place Park North esplanade.
Recent photos show the glass and warm-colored stone curtain wall steadily ascending toward the recently assembled steel frame of the crown. The yellow safety cocoon netting system is in the process of being disassembled, while the exterior hoist on the southern elevation remains attached. The fenestration is composed of a large vertically oriented grid of windows, with each section spanning four stories. The narrower eastern and western profiles feature three columns of windows, while the broader northern and southern sides have five columns.
3 Sutton Place will be capped with a flat parapet and crown motif made with a concentric pattern of indented rectangles across all four sides. These geometric forms appear to be the same size as the window surfaces on the main curtain wall.
Not much has been released regarding the breakdown of the residential units or possible amenities, though the tower’s main draw will certainly be its views. Standing in a relatively isolated position to the far east of Midtown, residents will be treated to panoramic views of Central Park, the Midtown skyline, the nearby Queensboro Bridge, and all the way down to Lower Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn.
YIMBY predicts that 3 Sutton Place will be finished in the latter half of 2021.
