After years spent on the assemblage and pre-construction of four adjacent lots, Excel Development will soon complete a new 23-story mixed-use building at 339-345 East 33rd Street in Kips Bay, Manhattan. Excel reportedly began purchasing the four contiguous sites in 2015 and completed a large air rights deal in December 2019.
A look at the rendering shows a white cement podium with floor-to-ceiling windows on the southern façade. Intersecting that is a bronze block that juts out on the western exterior, offering more exposure to light and views for the upper floors. Terraces and balconies are visible for the 16th floor and above.
Designed by GF55 Architects, the new building will eventually contain 173 residential units and two levels of commercial space spanning the property’s ground and cellar levels.
When complete, the building will span 150,000 square feet.
