Construction is nearing completion on The Treadwell, a 28-story residential tower at 249 East 62nd Street in the Treadwell Farm Historic District of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by INC Architecture & Design and developed by Dart Interests, the 347-foot-tall Art Deco-inspired building will yield 66 condominium units in studio to three-bedroom layouts with prices ranging from $1 million to $4.5 million. Brown Harris Stevens Development is managing sales and marketing for the homes, SLCE Architects is the executive architect, CM & Associates is the general contractor, and Zeckendorf Development is the co-development manager of the project, which stands near the corner of Second Avenue and East 62nd Street.
Nearly all of the remaining façade work has concluded since our last update in early March, when scaffolding still shrouded large portions of the podium and pinnacle of the reinforced concrete superstructure. Recent photographs show the envelope almost finished with only a handful of sections left to wrap up, including the paneling around the back of the crown, glass railings on the upper balconies, and the two ground-floor frontages that are still obscured by sidewalk sheds.
A panhandle section of the L-shaped parcel along East 62nd Street provides frontage for a secondary entrance.
The below aerial view of the multifaceted crown shows the details in the Art Deco-inspired design, which features a tiered arrangement of rounded fins enclosing the mechanical bulkhead. The four corners are cut out to make room for private terraces.
Renderings of The Treadwell by DBOX depict the main tower, the East 62nd Street annex, the lobby, and the residential interiors.
The Treadwell is expected to accommodate two to four homes per level. Amenities will be housed on the first two levels and include a double-height lobby, a fitness center, a sauna and steam room, an on-site superintendent, a children’s playroom, a private landscaped courtyard, a lounge, meeting rooms, and a meditation garden. Residents will also receive complimentary one-year memberships to concierge medicine group Sollis Health and curated experience masters, Omacasa.
The nearest subways from the property are the F and Q trains at the Lexington Avenue-63rd Street station to the west, and the N, R, W, 4, 5, and 6 trains at the Lexington Avenue-59th Street station.
The Treadwell is planning on opening for occupancy next year.
