The Turkevi Center has topped out at 821 First Avenue in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay. Work on the curving, sloped crown of the 563-foot-tall consulate for the Republic of Turkey is currently underway. Perkins Eastman is the designer of the 35-story mixed-use skyscraper, which will yield about 102,000 square feet of commercial space on the first 15 floors and house 20 apartments for residents and staff starting on the 20th floor.
One Vanderbilt has reached a significant milestone in Midtown East. Construction has begun on the setbacks that will form the signature crown and hold the architectural spire for the supertall office building. White steel beams that make up the sloped top of the setback are visible on the western elevation, while the core walls are also rising and can be seen from a distance. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the architect and SL Green is the developer of the future 58-story tower, which will stand 1,401 feet when finished and yield nearly 1.75 million square feet of commercial space.
Amidst the ongoing evolution of the Manhattan skyline, one of the most notable recent changes has been the completion of the Midtown East rezoning, which has already resulted in the rise of One Vanderbilt. Now, with 270 Park Avenue and other projects already on the development boards, Vornado and Rudin Management’s plans for 350 Park Avenue have been fully revealed, depicting yet another supertall that would rise almost 1,500 feet to its pinnacle. While the architect has not been confirmed, YIMBY is strongly suspicious that the design is by Foster + Partners, the firm responsible for the nearly-complete 425 Park Avenue.
Commercial developer Marx Realty has returned with the first completed images of its newly branded office tower at 10 Grand Central. The $45 million project entails a redesign and repositioning of the building’s lobby away from its original 44th Street location to provide more immediate access to Grand Central Terminal.
Ceruzzi Properties has officially launched sales at The Centrale, a new 71-story condominium building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli with executive architects SLCE. Located at 138 East 50th Street, the structure towers 800 feet above Midtown East, Manhattan and contains 124 residential units.
