Podium work is progressing for 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 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. Madison House has a footprint stretching between East 30th and 31st Streets and Madison Avenue. Madison House is currently more than 50 percent sold with over $300 million in sales, and occupancy is expected to begin this winter.
Work on the main tower has completely wrapped up since our last update in June, when some of the glass panels were still awaiting installation. Construction has now shifted to the retail podium and the residential entrance.
The main entrance for Madison House along East 30th Street is shaping up, with the rectangular frame now largely assembled. Directly above is the completed exterior paneling system, comprised of narrow white bands in front of ventilation grilles that cover the mechanical levels over the first floor.
On the opposite northern side along East 31st Street, excavation work has begun for the retail podium. This section of the property had served as the main staging area for workers, trucks, and deliveries throughout the construction of the structure.
There is also a subtle one-story extension of Madison House that runs parallel along Madison Avenue. Sidewalk scaffolding that once covered the majority of the walls behind is now disassembled.
The first set of homes in Madison House will sit 150 feet above street level, and buyers will be able to choose between one- to four-bedroom layouts with 11-foot-high ceilings. Prices range from around $1.775 million to around $25 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.
YIMBY last stated that Madison House is scheduled for completion this year.
