Construction is complete on 1228 Madison Avenue, a 20-story residential building in the Carnegie Hill section of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects and developed by CBSK Ironstate, a partnership of CB Developers, SK Development, and Ironstate, the structure will yield 15 condominiums designed by Kelly Behun Studio with sales handled by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. SLCE Architects was the architect of record for the project, which is located along Madison Avenue between East 88th and 89th Streets, directly behind Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum.
Since our last update in June, the remaining scaffolding has been dismantled from the structure and construction has concluded on the ground floor and entrance. Only some minor finishing touches were ongoing at the time of our photographs.
The following photos show the details around the main entrance, which is topped by a canopy with a grid of translucent glass. The doors are surrounded by decorative light fixtures, and the lower levels feature richly detailed stonework throughout. The classical setback design on the main eastern elevation culminates in an ornate crown and a flat roof parapet. Bay windows, columns, balconies lined with dark metal railings, and a proportional grid of windows complete the building’s high-quality, timeless finish.
1228 Madison Avenue features 14 full-floor residences and one duplex penthouse, all fitted with Calacatta marble finishes, burnished nickel fixtures and hardware, ceiling heights spanning up to 18.5 feet, and custom Lacanche stovetops. Residential amenities include a lobby designed by Behun, a landscaped communal rooftop terrace with panoramic views of Central Park, the Upper East Side, and Midtown, and a fitness center designed by Kelly Behun Studio. The sales gallery for 1228 Madison Avenue is now open inside the building.
YIMBY last reported that occupancy is expected to occur this fall.
