Macklowe Properties‘ newest residential tower at 200 East 59th Street stands 35 stories above Midtown East. Its entirety is now nearing completion as work begins to wrap on the lower floors.

The building was designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and rises to a total height of 490 feet from the retail base.
