Work is nearing completion on The Leyton, a 30-story residential tower at 1059 Third Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by Manuel Glas Architects and developed Dart Interests and Real Estate Inverlad, the 481-foot-tall, 127,000-square-foot structure will yield 38 residences with sales and marketing led by Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing. Frampton Co. and Champalimaud Design handled interior design for the residences, which include ten full-floor homes and one duplex penthouse. 1059 Third Avenue is located by the intersection of Third Avenue and East 63rd Street.

A significant amount of façade work has been completed since our last update in June, and only the lowermost floors and the roof parapet remain to be finished.

The following photos show the finished look of the southern elevation, which is now fully covered in its warm Porcelanosa stone façade and a handful of scattered windows.

The main western profile facing Third Avenue has almost all of its floor-to-ceiling glass, metal railings, terraces and balconies, and additional stone paneling in place. An advertisement for The Layton is displayed on the glass façade above the first story.

The northern wall’s columns of stone that run the full height of the structure enhance its sense of verticality.

Photographs of the back eastern elevation show some outstanding work on the glass curtain walls on the lower half of the superstructure, and a very small sliver of the exterior surface below the flat top remaining to go up.

    Looks like São Paulo.

  2. Let’s take a little bit of
    “this” and little bit of “that”… 🤔

    Side facade “borrowed” from 111 W. 57th, street level facade like a poor man’s Nordstrom, random windows (sizes and locations), flying balconies?, and interiors from old 1940’s MGM & Warner Bros. movies?!

    VIOLA an architectural MESS! 🤣

  3. I live in a homeless shelter with my 3 kids. We are all disabled, mentally and physically. I am here on YIMBY today on my real factual 100% no lie honest to god Birthday. On this day I, “Bruh”, am asking the YIMBY community to come together and help “bruh”. I want to thanks “NFA” and “Mr. Galikanokus” in advance.

    You can reach me at “RealBruh69 g mail. com”

  4. I really like the slender profile with the sleek stone and glass elements. It is very handsome. It’s just too bad that two of the sides have to be all bland, though at least it’s not bare concrete, which I appreciate.

  5. It’s a mess. Nice interiors, though.

  6. an excellent design its a shame not many can tell apparently

  7. The implications of this architecture is the elephant in the room, imo.. it Disrupts high-value/low density & height neighborhoods.. in NYC + any other high price urban area..

    Air rights exist for good reason, but I wonder how they now apply,. given these architectural advances..?
