Demolition work is ramping up at 343 Madison Avenue, site of a 1,050-foot commercial supertall in Midtown East. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Boston Properties, the 754,120-square-foot structure will yield 748,618 square feet of office space, 2,130 square feet of retail space, and 2,372 square feet of subterranean circulation paths to Grand Central Terminal and the future East Side Access project. The skyscraper is replacing a 105-year-old 15-story building between East 44th and 45th Streets that formerly housed the Metropolitan Transportation Authority headquarters.
New renderings have been released for 343 Madison Avenue, a proposed 1,050-foot-tall office supertall in Midtown East. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Boston Properties, the 753,120-square-foot structure would contain 748,618 square feet of office space, 2,130 square feet of retail space, and 2,372 square feet that will connect below grade to the future East Side Access project with subterranean circulation paths toward Grand Central Terminal.

A week after YIMBY first revealed renderings of 343 Madison Avenue, we’re back with a full rendering that further outlines the design and massing. The 925,630-square-foot Midtown East supertall is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and is being developed by Boston Properties.
The first renderings have appeared online for Kohn Pedersen Fox‘s planned 925,630-square-foot supertall at 343 Madison Avenue in Midtown East. While the full presentation from early September has yet to be posted online in spite of the city’s allegedly transparent public hearing process, YIMBY Forumer rgarri has created our own look at the tower and its future position on the Midtown skyline among other supertalls also in the planning stages.
Construction is set to rise at Three Hudson Boulevard, a planned $3 billion office skyscraper designed by FXCollaborative for both Boston Properties and The Moinian Group. The 56-story Hudson Yards development is expected to culminate with a roof parapet of around 940 feet and yield a total of 1.86 million square feet. The interiors will feature column-free floor plates, private outdoor terraces for select suites, and prime views of the Manhattan skyline, Hudson Yards, and the nearby Hudson River.
