Situated to the east of the Sherry Netherland, between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue, 520 Park Avenue, aka 45 East 60th Street, is now receiving its finishing touches. The 64-story and 781-foot-tall residential tower was designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects, and contains 33 condominiums across nearly 178,000 square feet, averaging around 5,400 square feet apiece. The site sits in Lenox Hill on the Upper East Side, along East 60th Street. Zeckendorf Development, Park Sixty LLC, and Global Holdings Inc. are the developers while SLCE Architects serves as the architect of record. The skyscraper is the 21st-tallest tower currently under construction across the Five Boroughs, and the tallest on the Upper East Side.
520 Park Avenue
There are few places better than Central Park to truly appreciate the scale of New York City. The cliff-like transition from Midtown to Olmsted’s masterpiece is part of what attracts people to the city, and it’s only getting more dramatic. Today YIMBY has a fresh rendering by Jose Hernandez, based on a photograph by Andrew Campbell Nelson from the Met’s Rooftop Garden, which reveals exactly how the skyline is expected to change through 2022 and currently appears in an exhibit at The Skyscraper Museum, in Lower Manhattan.
A quintet of new works by architect Robert A.M. Stern are making their mark on various parts of Manhattan, all with his signature style. 70 Vestry Street is in the early stages of construction; 30 Park Place, which includes the Four Seasons Downtown hotel, opened its doors in October; 20 East End Avenue could open this year; and 220 Central Park South is on the rise adjacent to Billionaires’ Row. Today, we check in on his skyscraping residential building at 520 Park Avenue.
The 54-story, 33-unit luxury residential tower under development at 520 Park Avenue (the tower is technically at 45 East 60th Street), on the southern end of the Upper East Side, is now roughly 30 stories tall. Limestone and windows are also now beginning to encapsulate all sides of the tower. The latest update comes as new photos of the project were posted to the YIMBY Forums. The building will eventually encompass 251,892 square feet and stand 780 feet above street level, per the latest permits.
Last month, YIMBY brought you new renderings of the 54-story, 33-unit ultra-luxury residential tower under construction at 520 Park Avenue, located on East 60th Street in Lenox Hill. The building is now between 15 and 20 stories above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Robert Walpole and ILNY, and can be seen for the first time from Central Park. Crews are also installing limestone to the structure’s western façade. The 781-foot-tall tower will encompass 251,892 square feet, and its condominium units should average an opulent 5,394 square feet apiece. The building’s amenities are all listed in our previous update. Zeckendorf Development is the developer and Robert A.M. Stern Architects is behind the design. SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.
