Condominium tower 695 First Avenue recently unveiled its amenities package and rebranded as One United Nations Park. The 43-story building offers owners of the 148 units sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline and the East River. Solow Building Company is developing the project, with Richard Meier & Partners Architects as the designer.
Construction is moving along at 685 First Avenue, as it nears completion in Murray Hill, Manhattan. The 42-story tower has officially launched sales ahead of its anticipated opening later this year, or early next.
Back in 1974, developer Sheldon Solow built a 50-story office tower at 9 West 57th Street that featured a dramatic, sloping facade clad in dark glass. Now he plans to knock down a little office building next door at 7 West 57th Street, to make way for a 19-story residential building.
