Façade installation is nearing the pinnacle of 3 Sutton Place, a 847-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 430 East 58th Street in Midtown East. 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 121 residential units with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline and the nearby East River. The site is a short walk from the waterfront and the Sutton Place Park North esplanade.
Photographs looking up and down the East River and from Roosevelt Island show the warm-colored stone and glass curtain wall approaching the crown. The crane and safety cocoon netting have both been disassembled since our last update during YIMBY’s annual construction countdown in December, while the elevator hoist is still attached to the southern elevation. The overall fenestration is composed of a vertically oriented window grid, with each section spanning four stories, and three units across on the narrower eastern and western sides and five units wide on the northern and southern walls.
Previous renderings have depicted the mechanical levels hidden above the last inhabitable floor and comprised of the metal-framed structure that we see sitting assembled atop the slender edifice. The crown will come with a concentric pattern of indented rectangles that matches the tower’s window grid below.
A completion date for 3 Sutton Place remains unclear, but YIMBY predicts sometime toward the end of 2021 or early 2022 as a reasonable time frame.
