Façade installation is moving along at 1059 Third Avenue, a 481-foot-tall mixed-use tower on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by Manuel Glas Architects for Real Estate Inverlad and Third Palm Capital, the slender 30-story structure is located between 62nd Street and 63rd Street and will yield a total of 127,000 square feet of newly built space. The property will contain 38 condominiums spread across 103,900 square feet, averaging around 2,740 square feet apiece.
Exterior work is now fully complete at 25 Park Row, a 702-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper in the Financial District, and what had been an active project on YIMBY’s annual December countdown list the past few years. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by J&R Music World’s Friedman family and L+M Development Partners, the 50-story reinforced concrete structure contains a total of 110 residences. YIMBY recently spoke with L+M’s Tell Metzger about the rise of the new tower, the evolution of the surrounding neighborhood, and the changing styles of contemporary residential high-rise design.
Installation of the stone and glass cladding is complete at 315 East 46th Street, the new nine-story home of the Permanent Mission of the United Arab Emirates to the United Nation in Turtle Bay, Midtown East. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, developed by Fisher Brothers, and erected by Plaza Construction, the 145-foot-tall structure is now almost fully finished.
Though it appears that demolition preparations have been put on hold for Tower Fifth, a proposed 1,556-foot-tall office skyscraper by Macklowe Properties, a new batch of renderings offers greater detail on the structure, which would become New York City’s tallest by roof height. Gensler is speculated to be the designer of the supertall project, which is located along East 51st Street between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, directly to the north of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Next up in our Turkey Week tour of stalled projects is 45 Broad Street, a 1,115-foot-tall residential skyscraper planned to become the tallest such structure in the Financial District. Designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Madison Equities and Gemdale Properties, the slender tower is most notable for its Art Deco-style appointments and sloped ornamental crown. Pizzarotti was formerly involved in the development of the project. It was announced earlier this year that 45 Broad Street will also have a slight height reduction of 80 feet to meet Federal Aviation Administration guidelines, according to the city’s Department of Buildings.
