Construction is getting closer to completion on Madison House, an 805-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 126 Madison Avenue and the tallest structure in the Midtown district of NoMad. Alternately addressed as 15 East 30th Street, the slender 62-story tower is designed by Handel Architects and developed by Fosun Group and JD Carlisle and will yield 199 condominiums with sales and marketing led by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing, as well as 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The property is located along Madison Avenue between East 30th and 31st Streets.
Since our last update in March, the exterior hoist has been disassembled from the northern elevation and most of the gaps in the façade have been filled in, with the most notable exception of a large section near the pinnacle.
The lower levels on the southern side facing East 30th Street are being enclosed in a façade made of thin white strips. These emphasize the verticality and slenderness of Madison House, and are going over the ventilation grilles and mechanical levels above the ground floor.
Below are renderings by DBOX that depict what this side will look like.
Meanwhile, to the west across Madison Avenue a small one-story extension of the first floor has been constructed, while the retail podium at the corner of Madison Avenue and East 31st Street is gradually being built up.
Homes at Madison House will start 150 feet above street level and come in one- to four-bedroom layouts with 11-foot-high ceilings. Prices range from around $1.5 million to around $13.7 million, and residents will have access to over 30,000 square feet of amenities including a 75-foot-long multi-lane indoor swimming pool and a spa with a sauna, cold bath, a hot tub, a lounge area, a fitness center elevated 120 feet above NoMad, a billiards room, a children’s room, a golf simulator, a Gachot-designed club area with double-height ceilings and fireplaces, and 24-hour concierge service within a garden-framed lobby along 15 East 30th Street.
Madison House is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
