For nearly the past year since YIMBY first revealed renderings of SLCE Architects’ 115 East 55th Street, construction progress remained below street level and tucked behind construction fences and machinery for a while. Now a revisit to the Midtown East site shows that the 185-foot-tall residential project has quickly sprung up and is getting close to topping out. Developed by Zeckendorf Development, the ground-up 18-story, 62-unit, 71,961-square-foot edifice is situated directly adjacent to the back eastern elevation of Norman Foster’s 47-story, 660,000-square-foot 425 Park Avenue.
115 East 55th Street
SLCE Architects has revealed a new rendering for 115 East 55th Street, a 185-foot-tall residential project underway in Midtown East. Developed by Zeckendorf Development, the 18-story project will rise directly adjacent to the eastern elevation of Norman Foster’s 425 Park Avenue.
Permits have been filed for an 18-story apartment building at 115 East 55th Street in Midtown East, Manhattan. Located between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue, the lot is four blocks south of the Lexington Avenue-59th Street subway station, serviced by the N, R, and W trains. Also nearby is the Lexington Avenue-53 Street subway station, serviced by the E and M trains. Zeckendorf Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.
