Perhaps the most exciting skyscraper project proposed for New York last year is 350 Park Avenue, a nearly 1,500-foot-tall skyscraper from Vornado Realty Trust and Rudin Management. After YIMBY broke the news on Vornado’s expected 2027 completion date for the tower back in February, we stopped by the site to check on the status of its current occupant. Located between East 51st and East 52nd Streets, a total of two edifices would need to be demolished to make way for the development.
The triplet of flat rectangular fins atop the roof parapet of 425 Park Avenue are fully enclosed, while some of the last remaining office floors for the upper tiered section of the 47-story, 897-foot-tall Midtown East skyscraper, are close to being clad. The commercial office project is designed by Norman Foster, head of Foster + Partners, and is being developed by L&L Holding Company LLC. Adamson Associates is the architect of record.
Architectural photographer Tectonic recently checked in on the progress at 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, an 800-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect, the 62-story project will contain 121 units.
Glass paneling is steadily enclosing the tiered crown of Kohn Pedersen Fox’s One Vanderbilt as the supertall inches closer to completion. Developed by SL Green, the 77-story, 1,401-foot-tall commercial office tower is by far the largest construction project underway in Midtown East and is among the most prominent new additions to the New York skyline.
Construction is approaching the final floors at 249 East 50th Street, a 151-foot-tall residential building in Midtown East. The 15-story structure is designed by Issac and Stern and developed by Tun Kyaw, who purchased the land for $17 million.
