Façade work is getting closer to completion on Rose Hill, a 639-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 30 East 29th Street in NoMad and number 23 on YIMBY’s 2020 construction countdown. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Rockefeller Group, the 45-story reinforced concrete superstructure will yield 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate. The earth-tone envelope features a number of Art Deco-inspired motifs and architectural forms that aim to both blend with the Manhattan skyline while distinguishing it from other new nearby developments in the neighborhood. Sales have already launched for the homes ranging from one- to four-bedroom units and start at $1.385 million.
Recent photos show the upper section nearly finished, including the tall crown and multiple levels of private outdoor terraces. The afternoon sunlight catches the various textures of the envelope, bringing out intricacies such as the setbacks on the sculpted crown and the chevron strips running up the height of the curtain wall. This decorative element is more emphasized on the main northern profile, which is depicted in the featured rendering.
The views from the higher floors show a large amount of the Midtown skyline, NoMad, the Flatiron District, Hudson Yards, Madison Square Park, and the East River.
Rose Hill is planned to be fully completed by next month.
