Installation of the glass curtain panels has begun on COOKFOX Architect’s 24-story Flatiron District project at 39 West 23rd Street. The topped out reinforced concrete superstructure rises along West 23rd Street between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue, one of Manhattan’s busiest thoroughfares. Anbau Enterprises is the developer of the two-tower complex.
Extell has revealed renderings of the Central Park Tower’s 100th floor residential club. Perched over 1,000 feet above Billionaires’ Row, this will be the highest residential lounge in the world. The club will span 8,300 square feet and include a private ballroom, a dining room, a bar, a full-service kitchen, and a wine and cigar lounge. The 1,550-foot-tall skyscraper, which is also addressed 217 West 57th Street, is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and will contain 179 residences, on which Extell is expecting a $4 billion sellout. The 100th floor club is designed by Rottet Studio, which also designed the residential interiors.
The final exterior touches and glass panels are going in at 10 East 30th Street. The ground-up project rises just over 200 feet tall and will open as a new 20-story hotel in the Manhattan neighborhood of NoMad between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue. The reinforced concrete superstructure is covered with a dark exterior on the eastern and western elevations, while a glass curtain wall covers the stepped northern facade and flat southern profile. The upper floors have a mix of sloped glass and setbacks that will make room for outdoor terraces for some of the hotel rooms. Brooklyn-based firm Baobab Architects is the designer of the project.
The terracotta paneling is rising up the slender façade of 30 East 31st Street in NoMad and has reached the lattice crown of cross beams at the top of the reinforced concrete superstructure. Located between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, the 39-story, 479-foot-tall residential tower is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and is being developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate. Reuveni Real Estate is marketing the building’s 42 units, which will be spread across just over 70,000 square feet for an average of 1,700 square feet apiece. Prices range from $1.65 to $12 million.
Work is progressing on the façade and interiors of 128 West 23rd Street, a topped-out 15-story residential building in Chelsea. Located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, the project will yield 40,230 square feet of residential space split among 33 units, for an average of 1,200 square feet apiece. Valyrian Capital and Pan Brothers are developing the building with Kutnicki Bernstein Architects as the architect of record.
