Back in late April the Wall Street Journal posted a sliver of the rendering for 126 Madison Avenue, a 47-story residential tower which is being developed by Fosun Property and JD Carlisle at the northern edge of NoMad, on the east side of 30th Street and Fifth Avenue. Now, YIMBY has the full image for the skyscraper, as well as another perspective, giving a much better idea of the 730-foot project’s eventual impact on the Midtown South skyline.
Since YIMBY last checked in on progress at 220 Central Park South and 217 West 57th Street, the latter building has been revealed in official renderings. But now we have an update on both sites from YIMBY reader ILNY, with the latest set of photos peeking into the projects from ground level.
YIMBY recently brought you renderings of proposals for Building 1 of Riverside Center by Arquitectonica, and permits were subsequently filed earlier this month. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which will be designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. It sits on the northwestern corner of the greater Riverside Center development, next to West 61st Street and the West Side Highway.
The Four Seasons Restaurant is a New York City icon within a New York City icon (the Seagram Building) and to say proposed changes to it were unwelcomed by the members of the Landmarks Preservation Commission would be the understatement of the week. The building, located at 375 Park Avenue / 99 East 52nd Street, was completed in 1958 and the restaurant opened one year later. They are the product of legendary architects Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Philip Johnson, along with the firm of Kahn & Jacobs. The restaurant is a symbol of New York’s power and greatness. Most of us will never dine there, but those who have consider its spaces basically sacred.
Eretz Group has acquired the 10-story, 170,000 square-foot office and retail building at 224 West 57th Street — across from Extell’s planned Nordstrom Tower, in Midtown — for $213.8 million. The building is landmarked, and after being acquired for $85 million in 2010, it underwent a $50 million renovation designed by Tirmizi Campbell. Per The Real Deal, the non-profit Open Society Foundations currently leases a majority of the building.
