Rafael Viñoly has become one of the more prominent designers of Manhattan’s residential real estate in recent years, and today, YIMBY has the first rendering for the architect’s latest skyscraper, at 249 East 62nd Street on the Upper East Side. While the tower will technically comprise only 32 floors, it will stand 510 feet to its rooftop, taking advantage of a Jetsons-esque podium to boost its upper levels high into the neighborhood skyline.
Construction has almost wrapped on 333 Lenox Road, in the Lefferts Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn, and today we have a photo update on the project as well as a new rendering of what it will ultimately look like. The building is a joint venture between SelfHelp Community Services Inc and the Briarwood Organization. Upon its completion, the development will yield 54 units of residential housing for low income senior citizens.
