YIMBY has exclusive new renderings for an upcoming 21-story mixed-use project at 335 Fifth Avenue in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of NoMad. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect PC and developed by James and Jerry Pi of Pi Capital Partners, the 72,000-square-foot building will yield 83 rental apartments above 10,000 square feet of commercial retail space, with the latter component spanning three stories at the base. The corner site is located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 33rd Street, directly to the east of the Empire State Building.
The main rendering above shows a multi-stepped podium with a double-height ground level, wrapped in floor-to-ceiling glass. The three stepped levels, which will be occupied by the commercial component, feature a series of outdoor terraces with glass railings and X-shaped braces that frame the panels on the western elevation. Above these levels, the main tower begins, which will house the apartments within a repetitive stack of floor plates. The western corner features multiple edges, while a uniform glass curtain wall encloses the entire structure up to its flat parapet.
No amenities have been disclosed at this time, though a rendering of a fitness center with access to a connecting outdoor terrace can be seen below. Two lobbies are separately devoted to the residents and those who would work on the lower levels. Other renderings show a typical kitchen and bathroom, the mail room, and a residential corridor.
335 Fifth Avenue is expected to break ground sometime next year, and completion is anticipated for 2024.
