YIMBY recently visited the newly-completed 43-story residential building dubbed Summit, at 222 East 44th Street, in the Midtown neighborhood of Turtle Bay. The tower was designed by Handel Architects and developed by BLDG Management. Leasing and marketing for the 429 residences, which range from studios to three-bedroom units, is being led by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Escobar Design by Lemay is behind the interiors.
This month, BLDG Management officially began leasing at The Summit, a new rental property the developer has coined “a diamond in the sky.” Located at 222 East 44th Street, the 43-story building arrives as the first ground-up, residential building in Manhattan from BLDG.
Progress at 222 East 44th Street , aka the Summit, is quickly wrapping up. The landscaped courtyard and main entrance are both underway, with the finishing touches of stone materials and accompanying landscaping steadily being installed. The all-glass structure rises 556 feet above the Midtown neighborhood of Turtle Bay, totaling 43 floors. Handel Architects designed the building while Escobar Design is handling the interiors. BLDG Management is the developer and Douglas Elliman is in charge of leasing and marketing for the 355,600 square foot tower.
Construction on the 43-story residential tower at 222 East 44th Street, in Midtown, is moving fast. The structure, dubbed Summit, is already topped out, and façade installation is underway. Now, thanks to new renderings by Binyan Studios, we have a chance to see what’s coming to the building’s base.
Back in March of 2014, YIMBY first reported on new building applications for a site bound by Houston Street, Avenue C, and East 2nd Street, at 11 Avenue C. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which is being developed by BLDG.
