Work has completed at 1050 Sixth Avenue, a 24-story building designed by Gene Kaufman Architects and developed by Skyline Developers. Called ML House, it sits to the south of Bryant Park by the corner of Sixth Avenue and West 40th Street. The tower is fully enclosed and features 62 studio to two-bedroom units that are now 50 percent leased. This is the only ground-up residential rental building surrounding Bryant Park.

Progress is moving forward on a new rental building in the heart of Midtown. After topping out in November 2017, 1050 Sixth Avenue’s glass and façade installation have now reached halfway up. The 24-story building is rising half a block away from Bryant Park. Skyline Developers is responsible for the project.
The Gene Kaufman designed-1050 Sixth Avenue, dubbed ML House, is making significant progress in the heart of Midtown, Manhattan. In a break from the architect’s norm, the building will not be hospitality-minded; rather, it will yield 24 floors of apartments, as well as ground-floor retail space. The site is half a block away from Bryant Park, with access to several subway lines just a few blocks in any direction. Orin Wilf’s Garden Homes and Skyline is responsible for the development.
Gene Kaufman’s creations are normally seen within the realm of hospitality development, but sometimes, the architect also designs residential buildings. Today, YIMBY has a fresh rendering for the firm’s project under construction at 1050 Sixth Avenue, and the latest photos from Tectonic show that the building is about to top out.
