Construction has topped out on The Bellemont, a 13-story residential building at 1165 Madison Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and developed by Naftali Group, the 120-foot-tall structure will yield 67,680 square feet with 12 condominiums and 3,749 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Titanium Construction Services is the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Madison Avenue and East 86th Street.
At the time of our last update in October, the reinforced concrete superstructure had begun to rise and stood four stories above street level. The edifice has since topped out and installation of the limestone façade has begun on the lower levels.
The following photos offer a close-up view of the look of the stone paneling above the sidewalk scaffolding.
The main rendering depicts the sunlit western façade of 1165 Madison Avenue, featuring numerous setbacks lined with a mix of stone corners and decorative glass and metal railings on the upper half. These spaces will act as private terraces. The building is capped by a multifaceted crown with a set of circular openings and tall windows.
A list of residential amenities has yet to be disclosed. 1165 Madison Avenue is slated for completion next summer, as stated on the on-site construction board.

Wow, they actually formed the arches in concrete. I guess that whole side is a shear wall?
12 apts ?
According to online sources, the development is completely sold out except for one penthouse unit.
RAMSA should design and propose finishing the Met Life North Building tower at 100 stories. It’s fitting the City should enjoy another supertall that emulates the best of pre-war design.
Agree. The north tower was never completed because the Depression hit; it would have been taller than the then recently completed Empire State Building. What is left today is merely the 20 story base. One can see it as similar to the Irving Trust Building.
100 stories? You might be able to get like 60 apartments out of that!
That would be awesome. But, I’m afraid it’ll never happen.
A huge thirteen story building with 12 apartments?!
The light color stone is stunning especially after completion when the sunshine will make the building glow.
