Demolition permits were filed last week for 5 East 51st Street, part of the assemblage that could give rise to New York City’s future tallest building by roof height. The future 1,556-foot-tall and 96-story Tower Fifth, is located in Midtown East, between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Permits were previously filed for this lot in April, but later withdrawn. Filings for the remaining structures within the footprint have also been trickling in over the past few months, hopefully indicating that excavation for the prospective supertall is imminent.
