Renderings from Issac & Stern Architects reveal a forthcoming condominium building at 1009 Second Avenue in the Turtle Bay section of Manhattan. Located near 54th Street, the 19-story building will replace an existing two-story commercial building and drastically improve the existing character of the ground-floor elevation.
Additional members of the project team include NAL Development and Input Creative Studio, which will oversee interior design.
The façade will be primarily composed of pale gray masonry, inlaid gray metal ribbons, staggered double-height windows, and thin gray mullions. Above the 13th floor, the building sets back from the Second Avenue elevation to support a series of private residential terraces. All residents will have access to an unspecified collection of amenities including communal outdoor recreational space on the 19th floor.
The building will top out at 210 feet above ground and yield 51,000 square feet.
The condominiums are expected to debut by the end of 2022.

They will be purchased and left empty.
How are the south-facing windows in the adjacent building legal?
The same way it’s legal for any building that has lot line windows knowing full well a construction on a neighboring lot could one day obstruct them.
Are there turtles in Turtle Bay?
Maybe it’s somebody’s pet? ?
the people in the high rise next door are about to have their very expensive views blocked as the building will be right next to their windows .
They will now be staring at a brick wall
Yes, but the new building’s south facing windows are only on the facade and when the low rise buildings next door are taken down and built up the south views of the new building will also be blocked. Not such a good deal given the front of the building is facing another high rise across the street and there are no other windows.
Enough already condos with no character.
All a big glut .
Why are you here?
Do you happen to know what happened to the previous building owner/owners?
