After several years of legal battles between developers involved with the project, and NIMBYs who were not, construction on 430 East 58th Street, aka 3 Sutton Place, is finally now rising above street level. The first set of reinforced concrete floors have already been poured, and formwork is now above the adjacent buildings. A slight cantilever on the eastern elevation is beginning to form and protrude outwards. The future residential skyscraper was formerly being designed by Foster + Partners, but is now being overseen by Thomas Juul-Hansen, and is set to rise 800 feet over the Midtown East neighborhood of Sutton Place. Gamma Real Estate is the developer, and the lot is located between Sutton Place South and First Avenue.
