A new rendering has been released for 3 Sutton Place, a 847-foot-tall residential skyscraper under construction at 430 East 58th Street in Midtown East. Spotted on architect Thomas Juul-Hansen‘s Instagram page, the rendering shows the 62-story tower illuminated at night from the East River. The project is being developed by Gamma Real Estate with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect and will yield 121 units. The property is located between Sutton Place and First Avenue, a short walk from the Sutton Place Park North esplanade that overlooks the East River, Roosevelt Island, Long Island City, and the Queensboro Bridge.
Demolition of the Union Carbide Building, JP Morgan Chase‘s former 52-story, 707-foot-tall headquarters at 270 Park Avenue, is now complete as work progresses on its supertall replacement. The remnants of the core and lower levels of the mid-century skyscraper were quickly dismantled and removed since our last update on the Midtown East project just a mere month ago. Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the full-block parcel, steelwork is continuing on the new 2.5 million-square-foot, 1,425-foot-tall tower, which will become one of the tallest structures in New York City. The large rectangular site is bound by Park Avenue to the east, Madison Avenue to the west, East 47th Street to the south, and East 48th Street to the north.
Exterior work is moving along on 115 East 55th Street, an 18-story residential building in Midtown East. Designed by SLCE Architects for Zeckendorf Development, the 185-foot-tall, 71,961-square-foot structure will yield 62 units. The property is located between Park and Lexington Avenues, directly adjacent to the rear of Norman Foster‘s 47-story, 660,000-square-foot 425 Park Avenue.
Last week TF Cornerstone and RXR Realty, development partners of the Grand Hyatt New York redevelopment in Midtown East, announced a cultural program at 175 Park Avenue with New York City-based non-profit Public Art Fund and Lord Cultural Resources. This will include public art installations, community events, and programming inside and around the Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed skyscraper.
Excavation has begun at 244 East 52nd Street, the site of a seven-story condominium building in Midtown East. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects for Minrav Development, the 26,000-square-foot structure will yield 15 units, a cellar level, a 30-foot-long rear yard, and what appears in the rendering to be a roof terrace. Residential amenities have yet to be disclosed for the property, which will rise from a 5,000-square-foot plot between Second and Third Avenues. Permits were filed in January 2019 to demolish the 9,200-square-foot education facility that formerly occupied the site.
