Standing just to the north of the iconic XYZ Buildings in Midtown Manhattan, 1271 Avenue of the Americas, aka the Time-Life Building, is currently undergoing a major transformation of its exterior curtain wall, outdoor plaza, landmarked lobby space, and mechanical makeup of the elevators and MEP systems. Built in 1958, Rockefeller Group Development Corporation is bringing the building into the twenty-first century by bringing on Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects LLP to helm the refurbishment of the 48-story office tower, which stands 587 feet to its rooftop.
The Rockefeller Group
There’s a new skyscraper to look forward to in NoMad, Manhattan. Permits have been approved for the construction of the Rockefeller Group’s 639-foot-tall building at 30 East 29th Street. This news comes nearly four months after YIMBY obtained the building’s early renderings, with design by CetraRuddy.
On Friday, YIMBY reported on the first DOB filings for a new tower at 30-36 East 29th Street, on the edge of Midtown South and NoMad. The Rockefeller Group is responsible for the site’s development, and today, we have the exclusive reveal of renderings for the future condominium building, which will feature an extremely striking design by CetraRuddy and a rooftop substantially above what’s indicated in the permits.
Permits have been filed for a 46-story residential tower at 30 East 29th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. The site is three blocks away from Madison Square Park. Two blocks away is the 28th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 6 train. Four blocks in the other direction is a homonymous station serviced by the Q and R trains. The Rockefeller Group will be responsible for the development.
Back in March, developers broke ground on a five-story, 256-unit residential complex at 90 Park Avenue, in the North Jersey community of Florham Park. Now, located in the same business park Green at Florham Park, a five-story, 130,000-square-foot medical office building is being planned at 150 Park Avenue. Summit Medical Group and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center recently signed a lease at the property, which will be home to a cancer treatment center. The Rockefeller Group, the same developer that built the residential project at 90 Park, is developing the medical facility. The building will be located roughly 1.5 miles from NJ Transit’s Madison station, although a large parking lot is also planned.
