Macklowe Properties‘ newest residential tower at 200 East 59th Street stands 35 stories above Midtown East. Its entirety is now nearing completion as work begins to wrap on the lower floors. While advertising may promise elephants, giraffes, and other live animals for prospective residents of the 67 condominiums, reality provides a bold white facade and neatly stacked, and slightly protruding wraparound balconies. The building was designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and rises to a total height of 490 feet from the retail base.
Covered from top to bottom in a sleek facade of curved glass corners, tall windows, and white paneling, ARO is a 738-foot, 62-story residential tower that has risen from the former site of the Roseland Ballroom in Midtown, Manhattan. Located at 242 West 53rd Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, the new structure contains nearly 450,000 square feet designed by CetraRuddy Architecture. Algin Management is the developer, and leasing is being led by Triumph Property Group, and has now commenced for the 426 available apartments.
Right next to the pedestrian walkway entrance for the Williamsburg Bridge, Essex Crossing is already reinventing Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The nine-building development will cost over one billion dollars and create nearly two million square feet across a six-acre area, and the aerial scope of construction is now expanding well beyond the initial first new two structures.
Sales have officially launched for 67 Livingston, in Brooklyn Heights. Rising 29 stories, the tower has a slender profile that sits directly adjacent to the Court Chambers Building to the east, at the intersection of Livingston Street and Court Street. 22 full-floor units are included within the 50,000 square foot envelope, which is comprised of two-, three- and four-bedroom layouts. The property is being developed by Silverback Development, which has brought CetraRuddy and HTO Architect to help with interior finishes and design. Marketing is being led by Bold New York.
Construction of what may temporarily become the tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side is poised to go vertical. As of yesterday, the building’s crane has arrived, and has been successfully installed for the soon-to-be 51-story 200 Amsterdam Avenue. Work has already reached the ground floor, with the foundation likely near completion. Concrete pouring for the first floor slab remains forthcoming. SJP Properties is responsible of the development.
