The New York Times has revealed full renderings for the planned 38-story, 29-unit condominium tower at 118 East 59th Street, in Midtown East. YIMBY brought you news of the project last fall, which the Chinese firm Euro Properties is developing. Soo K. Chan, of SCDA Architects, is designing the 70,260 square-foot structure and all the condos — starting at 1,400 square feet — will span at least one floor. Demolition of the site’s former four-story buildings is complete and construction begins in June.
