Demolition preparations are ramping up at 415 Madison Avenue in Midtown East, the site of a 605-foot-tall commercial skyscraper and number 25 on our year-end countdown. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by 415 Madison Avenue LLC, the 40-story building will yield 343,100 square feet of office space and replace a 66-year-old structure currently owned by Rudin Management at the corner of Madison Avenue and East 48th Street. YIMBY last reported that the LLC was seeking special permits as part of the ULURP process to build in compliance with the East Midtown sub-district regulations. This would allow for the reconstruction of overbuilt floor area in a new development, as well as obtaining air rights from the nearby landmarked St. Bartholomew’s Church along Park Avenue. The new property will also include a 350-square-foot ground-floor retail pavilion and a 2,400-square-foot open-air public concourse.
