138 East 50th Street
Ceruzzi Properties has officially launched sales at The Centrale, a new 71-story condominium building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli with executive architects SLCE. Located at 138 East 50th Street, the structure towers 800 feet above Midtown East, Manhattan and contains 124 residential units.
Topping out just over a year ago, 138 East 50th Street is now the 19th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. Standing 803 feet to its rooftop, the project is being designed by Pelli Clarke-Pelli and developed by Ceruzzi Properties, while SLCE Architects is the architect of record. Inside, there are 124 condominiums spread among 63 floors, covering a total scope of over 253,000 square feet. Each unit will average around 1,700 square feet. The site is located between Third and Lexington Avenue, in Midtown East.
Last week, YIMBY was taken on a tour of 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, visiting the rooftop, the terrace, and the lobby. The building, located in the heart of the Financial District, has made incredible progress, with the façade now complete save for windows connected to the exterior hoist. Interior work is also approaching the finish line.
Earlier last week, YIMBY got the opportunity to see the mountainous Midtown neighborhood, the rising towers in Queens, and the Upper East Side from the penthouse of 252 East 57th Street. The full-floor apartment had two terraces on the Northwest and Southeast edges of the building, from which we were given an eye-to-eye look at several high-rises on the rise.
