Work is nearing completion on Madison House, aka 126 Madison Avenue, number 18 on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest projects under construction in New York City. Designed by Handel Architects, the 805-foot-tall, 62-story residential skyscraper topped out over NoMad with its façade almost entirely completed. Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are developing the nearly 300,000-square-foot project, while Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing of its 199 condominiums.
The final charcoal-colored curtain wall panels were recently hoisted into place on 130 William Street, the 19th tallest skyscraper under construction in our annual countdown. Designed by David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates, the 800-foot-tall residential building made rapid progress throughout 2019, capped now by the completion of its signature façade of concrete-cast arches. The 66-story Financial District project is being developed by Lightstone, with Hill West Architects as the architect of record. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the 242 residential units, which will range in price from around $1,300,000 for a one-bedroom to $20,000,000 for a four-bedroom, full-floor penthouse.
The first curtain wall sections have begun installation at 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, the 20th building on our countdown of the tallest projects in the city. The 800-foot-tall Midtown East residential skyscraper is designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate, with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect.
Work has begun on the crown of Skyline Tower, aka 23-15 44th Drive, the 21st tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s annual December countdown. The reinforced concrete superstructure topped out over Long Island City at 778 feet tall, making it the current tallest skyscraper in Queens and the outer boroughs. The project is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by United Construction & Development Group, FSA Capital, and Risland US Holdings LLC. Modern Spaces is the exclusive marketing and sales agency for the 802 residences, which are designed by Whitehall Interiors.
Extell’s 50 West 66th Street slots into YIMBY’s countdown list as the 22nd tallest project underway in New York City. Excavation and foundation work for the 775-foot-tall residential skyscraper progressed quickly in 2019, but activity at the site has recently halted. The reasons for the stoppage are unclear, but YIMBY expects that work will start up again in early 2020. Snohetta is the design team behind the tower, which would become the tallest structure on the Upper West Side.
