YIMBY recently went on a hard-hat tour of Madison House, aka 15 East 30th Street The slender 805-foot-tall tower is topped out as the tallest skyscraper in NoMad, standing 62 stories tall, and creates a distinct multi-pointed crown and silhouette on the Midtown skyline. The residential building is designed by Handel Architects, while Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are responsible for the nearly 300,000-square-foot development. Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.
This past September saw concrete reach the rooftop of Extell‘s record-setting Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th Street, and shortly thereafter One Vanderbilt‘s spire quickly come together at the top of SL Green‘s new commercial jewel. October has also commenced with a bang, and last week, workers installed the first steel for the crowning level of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street, reaching the parapet 1,428 feet above the streets below. That makes the building the second-tallest in New York City by its parapet, ranking below the 1,550-foot Central Park Tower, and above the 1,396-foot 432 Park Avenue. Work has indeed reached the last section of the crown, but is important to note that the supertall has not officially topped out yet.
30 East 31st Street’s exterior work is inching closer to completion, as installation of the light-colored panels in between the windows on the bottom of the northern elevation is now underway. Located in NoMad between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, the 479-foot-tall residential tower is topped-out at 40 stories, and the crossed beams at the top of the podium will soon be encased with the newly arrived panels. The 88,000-square-foot project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate. Douglas Elliman Development is marketing the building’s 42 units, which will be spread across 70,070 square feet for an average of 1,700 square feet apiece. Prices will range from $1.65 to $12 million.
The installation of the outside envelope on all levels of “The Dime” in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is nearing the finishing mark. The topped-out, 23-story mixed-use complex is located at 209 Havemeyer Street and stands close to the elevated Marcy Avenue subway station. Fogarty Finger Architecture is in charge of designing the new building, which rises behind the 111-year-old, landmarked Dime Savings Bank, while Charney Construction & Development and Tavros Holdings are developing the 350,000-square-foot complex. Douglas Elliman is handling leasing, JLL is the commercial broker, and Ripco is handling the retail component.
Installation of 40 Bleecker Street‘s warm-colored brick façade has begun behind the black construction netting and scaffolding that cover the NoHo property. Designed by Rawlings Architects and developed by Broad Street Development, the 12-story residential building topped out in early 2019. Ryan Korban is the interior designer of the development’s 61 units, and Edmund Hollander Design is the landscape architect. A mix of one- to five-bedroom homes will come with the project. Fredrik Eklund of Bravo TV show Million Dollar Listing New York, John Gomes, and Sarah Burke are on the Douglas Elliman Development Marketing team in charge of sales and marketing.
