Work at the corner lot for 1241 Broadway in NoMad is seeing a lot of activity in preparation for a 22-story, SOM-designed commercial office building. Excavation on the perimeter of the site is finishing up, while work on the reinforced concrete foundations and core walls is happening simultaneously. This is a rapid change of pace since YIMBY last visited the Midtown location a couple months ago, when it was still quiet. The future 318-foot-tall, 170,000-square-foot tower is being developed by GDS Development and Sweden-based Klovern. Triton Construction is currently in charge of building the structure.
Work on the reinforced concrete superstructure at 126 Madison Avenue, aka 15 East 30th Street, is now topped out. The slender 756-foot-tall tower is now the tallest skyscraper in NoMad, standing 51 stories, and makes a clear impression on the Midtown skyline. The residential building is being designed by Handel Architects, while Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are responsible for the nearly 300,000-square-foot development.
The Kaufman Organization has partnered with renowned street artist Tristan Eaton to complete a 100-foot-tall mural in the heart of NoMad, Manhattan. The artwork is positioned on the south-facing wall of 236 Fifth Avenue and depicts Evelyn Nesbit, a 20th century fashion icon, actress, and chorus girl who graced the magazine covers of Vanity Fair, Cosmopolitan, and Harper’s Bazaar magazines, among others.
New York City will soon be home to the world’s tallest modular hotel, an ambitious new venture by Marriott International. Designed by Danny Forster & Architecture, the 26-story AC NoMad Hotel is set to dethrone the 19-story citizenM New York Bowery Hotel as the tallest modular hotel ever pieced together.
Construction on 30 East 29th Street, aka Rose Hill, is moving along quickly in NoMad. Work on the foundations wrapped up in January and now the upcoming 639-foot-tall structure is several floors above street level. The upcoming 49-story project is located between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue and is being designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by the Rockefeller Group. The residential high-rise will incorporate an Art Deco-inspired design, setting it apart from other neighboring towers rising in the development boom, responsible for changing the skyline south of the Empire State Building.
