Façade installation is continuing 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 span 67,680 square feet and yield 12 condominium units with interiors by Achille Salvagni and sales and marketing by Compass Development Marketing Group, as well as 3,749 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Titanium Construction Services is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Madison Avenue and East 86th Street, a short walk from Central Park.
Since our last update in late July, the assembly of scaffolding and black netting has climbed further up the superstructure as work shifts to the ornamental crown. The construction elevator has been dismantled from the western corner facing Madison Avenue, and more limestone paneling has been installed around the arched windows on the second level. Metal and stone railings will eventually be put in place along some of the windows, balconies, and setbacks as work progresses further.
The main entrance will be located in the center of the western profile, which is depicted in the main rendering with a curved sidewalk canopy protruding from the arched entryway. Flanking each side are floor-to-ceiling windows and separate pairs of doors for the two retail spaces. The wrap-around sidewalk scaffolding will likely stay up for a couple more months until work on the top levels concludes.
Residential amenities at The Bellemont include an outdoor rooftop terrace overlooking Central Park, a screening room, a regulation squash court, a children’s play room, and a holistic fitness space.
1165 Madison Avenue is slated for completion next summer, as stated on the on-site construction board.
