Construction has reached the roof parapet of 262 Fifth Avenue, a 56-story residential skyscraper in NoMad, Manhattan. Designed by Meganom with SLCE Architects as the executive architect and developed by Boris Kuzinez of Five Points Development under the Five Points 262 Project LLC, the 860-foot-tall structure will yield 26 condominium units with an average scope of 3,200 square feet, including at least one quadruplex unit. GEA Consulting Engineers is the MEP engineer and CM & Associates Construction Management is the general contractor for the project, which rises from a 5,000-square-foot plot at the southwest corner of Fifth Avenue and West 29th Street.
The reinforced concrete superstructure continued its steady ascent since our last update in late December, when crews were forming the double-height floors on the upper half. Recent photos show the building structurally topped out, with crews erecting the steel framework for the rectangular canopy that will cover the communal roof terrace. YIMBY expects this work to wrap up before the end of the month. Façade installation has yet to begin, but could commence in the coming weeks.
The below main rendering shows the outdated 1,054-foot-tall supertall design, but is still a good reference for the upcoming appearance of the façade.
YIMBY anticipates 262 Fifth Avenue will complete construction sometime in early 2025.
