Extell has revealed renderings of the Central Park Tower’s 100th floor residential club. Perched over 1,000 feet above Billionaires’ Row, this will be the highest residential lounge in the world. The club will span 8,300 square feet and include a private ballroom, a dining room, a bar, a full-service kitchen, and a wine and cigar lounge. The 1,550-foot-tall skyscraper, which is also addressed 217 West 57th Street, is designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and will contain 179 residences, on which Extell is expecting a $4 billion sellout. The 100th floor club is designed by Rottet Studio, which also designed the residential interiors.
The final exterior touches and glass panels are going in at 10 East 30th Street. The ground-up project rises just over 200 feet tall and will open as a new 20-story hotel in the Manhattan neighborhood of NoMad between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue. The reinforced concrete superstructure is covered with a dark exterior on the eastern and western elevations, while a glass curtain wall covers the stepped northern facade and flat southern profile. The upper floors have a mix of sloped glass and setbacks that will make room for outdoor terraces for some of the hotel rooms. Brooklyn-based firm Baobab Architects is the designer of the project.
Michael Spinard of TS Contracting has submitted zoning amendment proposals for a 6,500-square-foot lot in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn with the aim of developing a six-story residential building. The proposed project would take shape at 265 Front Street, located just a few blocks from the Manhattan Bridge and the East River Waterfront.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 92-54 Queens Boulevard in Rego Park, Queens. Located between Eliot Avenue and 62nd Avenue, the interior lot is near the Woodhaven Boulevard subway station, serviced by the M and R trains. Hai Keng Luo under the Quincy Realty LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The terracotta paneling is rising up the slender façade of 30 East 31st Street in NoMad and has reached the lattice crown of cross beams at the top of the reinforced concrete superstructure. Located between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, the 39-story, 479-foot-tall residential tower is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and is being developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate. Reuveni Real Estate is marketing the building’s 42 units, which will be spread across just over 70,000 square feet for an average of 1,700 square feet apiece. Prices range from $1.65 to $12 million.
