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.
15 East 30th Street
Work on the reinforced concrete superstructure at 126 Madison Avenue, aka 15 East 30th Street, is now topped out. The slender 756-foot-tall tower is now the tallest skyscraper in NoMad, standing 51 stories, and makes a clear impression on the Midtown skyline. The residential building is being designed by Handel Architects, while Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are responsible for the nearly 300,000-square-foot development.
Construction at 15 East 30th Street, aka 126 Madison Avenue, is climbing higher above NoMad. Work has surpassed the roof of Sky House, one the earliest slender residential skyscrapers in New York City. The upcoming 756-foot-tall, 51-story structure is being designed by Handel Architects while Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are responsible for the development. The tower will contain 180 condominiums, which will average more than 1,600 square feet. The project will yield about 300,000 square feet, with 7,500 square feet of retail space divided among two storefronts facing East 30th Street and Madison Avenue.
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.
15 East 30th Street, also known as 126 Madison Avenue, has been making swift progress toward its 51-story pinnacle. 16 floors have now been built, comprising 30 percent of the eventual total floor count. The building will soon rise to be one of the tallest buildings in the NoMad neighborhood, featuring exceptional views of the Empire State Building.
