As the Landmarks Preservation Commission resumes its review of construction applications, a slew of newly proposed developments have come to light. One of these projects includes a major retrofit of the former Hotel Wales at 1295 Madison Avenue in Carnegie Hill, Manhattan.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark at 1230 Madison Avenue, a Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed residential building on the Upper East Side. The reinforced concrete superstructure is starting to reach the height of its abutting low-rise neighbors and will eventually top out at 208 feet tall. Located in Carnegie Hill on the same block as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the 20-story project is being developed by Real Estate Equities Corporation (R.E.E.C.) with SLCE Architects as the architect of record.
Sales have officially launched for The Hayworth, Ceruzzi Properties’ latest residential development in Carnegie Hill, Manhattan. Located on the northeast corner of 86th Street at 1289 Lexington Avenue, the 21-story building will contain 61 condominiums that range in size from two to five-bedroom layouts. There will also be ground-floor retail.
City officials recently celebrated the commencement of construction at Caton Flats, a mixed-use development in Flatbush, Brooklyn, that will eventually introduce 255 units of affordable housing.
A new rendering has been revealed for 1230 Madison Avenue, an upcoming 20-story building on the Upper East Side. Located on Carnegie Hill by the the southwestern corner of Madison Avenue and East 89th Street, the site is on the same block as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and just six blocks away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The architectural language and style easily identifies it as the work of Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
