Exterior work is now nearly complete on 30 East 31st Street, a 39-story, 479-foot-tall residential building in NoMad. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate, the slender reinforced concrete tower will yield a total of 70,000 square feet and 42 units marketed by Reuveni Real Estate. Each of the homes will average 1,700 square feet and range in price from $1.65 million to upward of $12 million.
Recent photos show further progress on the signature lattice of exterior columns since our last update in October.
Work is nearly complete on the the northern and eastern elevations. A set of pointed arches matching the crown design stand finished at the podium setback.
From here, the tower rises uniformly to a flat roof parapet and a geometric pattern of triangular windows within the signature lattice.
The eastern wall repeats the same motif using white panels placed in front of the blank rectangular surface.
Part of the wall has metal ventilation grilles, which explain the dark-colored shapes.
This motif replicates itself on the western profile, where we can see the many layers that go into the simple yet elegant finish to the design.
The southern elevation is the furthest from completion, though work appears to be catching up. It looks like most of the windows are in place, with only the metal lattice panels that will match the look of the northern profile awaiting installation. These panels have more depth and bulk than those on the sides of the building, more clearly defining the different window shapes.
The basement will feature private storage, bicycle storage, and a laundry room for residents. The ground floor is planned to include a residential banquet hall that acts as lounge adjacent to a viewing garden, a private catering kitchen, and dining room. A fitness center will sit on the second level with an attached terrace and garden. From there, floors two through eight will house two one-bedroom units each, followed by full-floor two-bedroom residences from the ninth through the 37th floors. The 38th and 39th floors will be occupied by a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom duplex penthouse.
A final completion date for 30 East 31st Street has not been announced, but YIMBY estimates sometime toward the middle of the year is likely.
