YIMBY user Thomas Koloski recently photographed New York City from above, capturing the prodigious swaths of construction transforming the skylines of Lower Manhattan, Midtown, and beyond. Below are a number of major sites that are taking shape, some of which are nearing topping off and set to be completed in 2020.
Handel Architects is designing a new residential tower to NoMad at 15 East 30th Street, aka 126 Madison Avenue, which is currently the 25th tallest skyscraper under construction in the Five Boroughs. It sits to the north of 11 East 29th Street, aka Sky House, which is considered to be the first slender residential tower in New York City. Handel’s 51-story, 756-foot-tall building also features a slender profile as viewed from both north and south perspectives. Recent photos show the facade rising several floors above street level as the superstructure begins to peak above the surrounding urban fabric. Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are the developers of the project.
Demolition permits have been filed for the five-story building at 126 Madison Avenue, in Midtown South, Manhattan. The site will become a commercial extension of 15 East 30th Street, a residential high-rise. Photos show construction is moving along for the project, which will top out at 51 stories.
