The yellow safety cocoon has been installed around the perimeter of the floor plates at 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, as construction of the 800-foot-tall skyscraper rises above Midtown East. Located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue, the formwork has surpassed the parapets of the adjacent buildings and is cantilevered out over the structure’s eastern neighbor. The project is being designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the executive architect on the project.
Construction at 232 East 54th Street has topped out. The structure stands 420 feet tall above Midtown East and is being designed by Ismael Leyva Architects. YIMBY last reported that Elk Investors was listed as the exclusive developer of the building, but ownership may have fully transferred to Mossanen Group and an LLC known as East 54th St. Properties. The tower was originally slated to only rise around 20 stories, but this scope was doubled to 40.
StudioMDA will appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) this week with updated proposals to expand an existing two-story building in TriBeCa.

The proposed expansion would top-off at five stories to better match its neighbors on either edge of the structure.

YIMBY got a sneak peek of the views from One Vanderbilt‘s future three-story, indoor and outdoor observatory, which is situated 1,020 feet above Midtown East.

The tapering steel structure will soon terminate in a staggered, illuminated crown topped with an architectural spire that will push the project’s total height to 1,401 feet.
