Construction has reached street level at 7-9 East 30th Street, a 227-foot-tall residential building from SWA Architecture in NoMad. Developed by Castellan Real Estate Partners, the 23-story structure will span 41,992 square feet, yielding 54 residences and 2,142 square feet of ground-level retail.
A photo by Tectonic shows the state of progress at the site, which is located between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue. Some of the formwork is visible above the ground floor, and the sidewalk scaffolding is in the process of being assembled.
Renderings show a mixed façade of glass and gray metal cladding with a distinctive sculpted, curving array of balconies on the main slender elevation. Running from the eighth floor to the roof parapet, each terrace has a different shape and layout. Images also show a rooftop terrace and what looks like an interior lounge.
7-9 East 30th Street is located four blocks north of Madison Square Park and several blocks away from the Empire State Building. The closest subways are the 6 train at the 28th Street and 33rd Street stations along Park Avenue South and the R and W trains at the 28th Street station along Broadway to the southwest. The B, D, F, M, N, Q, R, W trains and 33rd Street PATH station are also nearby at Herald Square.
A completion date for 7-9 East 30th Street has not been announced.
