The Gene Kaufman designed-1050 Sixth Avenue, dubbed ML House, is making significant progress in the heart of Midtown, Manhattan. In a break from the architect’s norm, the building will not be hospitality-minded; rather, it will yield 24 floors of apartments, as well as ground-floor retail space. The site is half a block away from Bryant Park, with access to several subway lines just a few blocks in any direction. Orin Wilf’s Garden Homes and Skyline is responsible for the development.
Foundation work is underway on the 24-story, 62-unit mixed-use building under development at 1050 Sixth Avenue, located between West 39th and 40th streets in Midtown near Bryant Park. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will measure 62,886 square feet and stand 299 feet to the top of its bulkhead.
A rendering has been revealed of the planned 24-story, 62-unit mixed-use building under development at 1050 Sixth Avenue, located between West 39th and 40th streets, just below Bryant Park in Midtown. The reveal comes as Skyline Developers held a groundbreaking ceremony for the project earlier this week, as reported by Real Estate Weekly. The new building will encompass 62,886 square feet. It will feature 2,710 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, and its residential units, which will be rental apartments, should average 841 square feet apiece. Amenities include storage for 32 bikes, private residential storage, laundry facilities, a fitness center, and a tenant lounge. The building’s top unit will also include a private rooftop terrace, with a number of other units boasting balconies. SoHo-based Gene Kaufman is the architect of record. Completion is expected in late 2018. YIMBY first brought you news of the project when building applications were filed in December of 2014.
