Last month, YIMBY brought you new renderings of the 54-story, 33-unit ultra-luxury residential tower under construction at 520 Park Avenue, located on East 60th Street in Lenox Hill. The building is now between 15 and 20 stories above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Robert Walpole and ILNY, and can be seen for the first time from Central Park. Crews are also installing limestone to the structure’s western façade. The 781-foot-tall tower will encompass 251,892 square feet, and its condominium units should average an opulent 5,394 square feet apiece. The building’s amenities are all listed in our previous update. Zeckendorf Development is the developer and Robert A.M. Stern Architects is behind the design. SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.

It’s been nearly a year since we checked in on Related’s rental development at 261 Hudson Street, and a lot has happened since then. Thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that façade work on the 12-story project is nearly complete.
It’s been a few months since we last checked in on the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed 116-unit residential project going up at 220 Central Park South. Back in February, the tower portion had risen to about 15 stories. Now, as seen in photos supplied to YIMBY by photographer Tectonic, the tower has risen past 25 stories, on its way to 70, with more of the Alabama Silver Shadow limestone cladding in place.
Back in December of 2015, construction was up to the third floor of the 54-story ultra-luxury residential building under development at 520 Park Avenue, located on East 60th Street in Lenox Hill. Now, construction has commenced on the tower portion of the building, and YIMBY can reveal new renderings of the limestone-clad structure. The 251,892-square-foot, 737-foot-tall tower will host 33 condominiums, averaging an incredible 5,394 square feet apiece. Units will span at least the entire floor, with the duplex and triplex penthouses consisting of the largest configurations. Amenities will include a salon, a pool, a fitness center with exercise rooms, a treatment room, a sauna and steam rooms, and a children’s playroom. There will also be guest suites, a wine cellar, private storage space, a garden, and a 21-bike storage room. Zeckendorf Development is the developer and Robert A.M. Stern Architects is behind the design, while SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.
It was back in January that the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved exterior modifications that will allow 1 Wall Street, the 1931, 50-story-tall, Ralph Walker-designed office building at the corner of Broadway in the Financial District,…
