Construction is wrapping up on 7-9 East 30th Street, a 227-foot-tall residential building in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of NoMad. Designed by SWA Architecture and Efrain Perez, and developed by Castellan Real Estate Partners, the 23-story reinforced concrete edifice will yield 41,992 square feet with 54 residences and 2,142 square feet of ground-level retail space. The property is located between Madison and Fifth Avenues and is being built by Titanium Construction Services Inc.
Since our last update in October, most of the scaffolding and black netting that covered the midsection of the building have been removed, with only a small section remaining above the setback. Some work still remains to be completed on the ground floor facing East 30th Street, which is still tucked underneath sidewalk scaffolding. A temporary canopy hangs above the main entrance and is needed to obtain TCO while fabrication and installation of the final canopy awaits, which will arrive near the end of February.
The following close-up shots showcase the distinctive stack of geometrically shaped balconies and their numerous angled cuts, which runs from the ninth-floor setback up to the last habitable floor. Below, the building features a more conventional enclosure of glass interspersed with sections of geometric paneling. The eastern wall is left blank.
Not much is known about the interiors, though YIMBY last reported there would be an outdoor terrace and a residential lounge. The closest subways are the 6 train at the 28th Street and 33rd Street stations along Park Avenue South and the R and W trains at the 28th Street station along Broadway to the southwest.
7-9 East 30th Street should be completed in the coming months.
