Façade work has reached the crown of 150 East 78th Street, a 16-story residential building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Developed by Midwood Investment & Development and EJS Group and designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects with Ismael Leyva Architects as executive architect and residential layout designer, the 205-foot-tall property will yield 25 units ranging from three- to five-bedroom condominiums. Sales have launched and are being handled by Compass Development Marketing Group. 150 East 78th Street is found at the corner of East 78th Street and Lexington Avenue.
Construction has topped out on 200 East 83rd Street, a 449-foot-tall residential tower designed by Robert A.M. Stern on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Developed by Naftali Group and Rockefeller Group, the 243,128-square-foot structure rises 35 stories and will yield 86 units spread over 205,877 square feet, for an average scope of 2,393 square feet. SLCE Architects is the architect of record for the project, which is located at the corner of Third Avenue and East 83rd Street.
Demolition of the Union Carbide Building, JP Morgan Chase‘s former 52-story, 707-foot-tall headquarters at 270 Park Avenue, is now complete as work progresses on its supertall replacement. The remnants of the core and lower levels of the mid-century skyscraper were quickly dismantled and removed since our last update on the Midtown East project just a mere month ago. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the full-block parcel, steelwork is continuing on the new 2.5 million-square-foot, 1,425-foot-tall tower, which will become one of the tallest structures in New York City. The large rectangular site is bound by Park Avenue to the east, Madison Avenue to the west, East 47th Street to the south, and East 48th Street to the north.
Construction is nearing completion on 101 West 14th Street, a 13-story residential building on the border of Chelsea and Greenwich Village. Designed by ODA New York and developed by Gemini Rosemont, the property sits at the corner of West 14th Street and Sixth Avenue and will yield 44 condominium units as well as 5,830 square feet of ground-floor retail space for two tenants. Sales have launched for the homes, which are being marketed by Nestseekers International’s Serhant Team and are expected to start at $1.35 million for one-bedroom units.
Our last update on 111 West 57th Street covered the removal of the exterior hoist on the northern elevation of the 1,428-foot Midtown supertall. Now, the construction crane is rapidly being disassembled from the southern face of the world’s most slender structure. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, 111 West 57th Street features a height-to-width ratio of 24:1 and will yield 60 units designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. The project is located on Billionaires’ Row between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, almost perfectly aligned with the center line of Central Park.
