Exterior work is wrapping up on Rose Hill, a 639-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 30 East 29th Street in NoMad. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Rockefeller Group, the 45-story tower features a distinctive Art Deco-inspired façade and will yield 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate. Sales have launched for the homes, which come in one- to four-bedroom layouts and range in price from $1.385 million to upward of $19.5 million for the penthouse unit. Rose Hill’s name is derived from the former 130-acre Rose Hill Farm estate that once occupied this part of Midtown, Manhattan. The property is situated between Madison Avenue to the west and Park Avenue South to the east.
With the bronze and glass curtain wall of the main tower of substantially complete, construction is now focused on the low-rise podium that sits along East 29th Street.
Photos show the podium getting closer to completion with only a few minor parts of the façade left to be installed. Sidewalk scaffolding and construction boards surround the first level, while the central double doors to the main lobby are already finished. We could see the scaffolding removed in the next couple months once all the pieces of the podium’s exterior are in place. There are nicely crafted railings that go in between the extended sections of the columns around the edges of the podium setbacks. Both the railings and panels utilize an upward-pointing chevron pattern that is uniformly repeated across the entire superstructure up to the ornate multifaceted crown.
Rose Hill already includes a number of model residences inside the main tower. Units feature rusticated hardwood floors and bronze-finished hardware throughout. Kitchens have custom Italian-made matte charcoal cabinetry with metal-framed glass upper cabinets and Calacatta Razzi honed marble countertops. Master bathrooms are fitted with Greek Dolomite Honed stone walls with Breccia Capraia accent shower walls, dark marble radiant heated floors, custom walnut and bronze vanities with marble countertops, and aged brass fixtures. These are the following model residences built inside Rose Hill: model residence 20A, a two-bedroom two-bathroom home furnished by CetraRuddy, 11A, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom layout; and 20C, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit. 11A and 20C were furnished and staged by IMG.
Rose Hill looks like it could be fully completed sometime later this summer.
