A year ago, YIMBY brought you new renderings of redevelopment plans for the 24-story office building at 380 Madison Avenue, between East 46th and 47th streets in Midtown. By removing certain floors within the building, the structure will grow to 32 stories but will retain the same square-footage. According to the Wall Street Journal, the process is well underway, with 18 percent of the original building in total expected to be removed and used for a vertical expansion. The completed building, called 390 Madison Avenue, will have 663,419 square feet of commercial space, most of which will be office space, although the first two floors will contain double-height retail space. L&L Holding Company is developing the project and Kohn Pedersen Fox is designing it. Completion is expected in early 2017.
