The last time we checked on 45 East 22nd Street, in the Flatiron District, the 65-story condo tower had risen only a dozen floors. Now, the structure has reached its rooftop, easily surpassing the 600-foot-tall One Madison nearby. Tectonic recently swung by the site and gave us an update on the construction progress.
A 500,000-square-foot office building in the Flatiron District is getting some upgrades. 41 Madison Avenue, located between East 25th and 26th streets, was built by Samuel Rudin in 1972 and now the Rudin Management Company is renovating its public spaces, and YIMBY has the first renderings.
The Morris Adjmi-designed condo building at 38-42 West 18th Street and 41-43 West 17th Street is pushing through its final phase of public approvals, and YIMBY has some new renderings and details for the project from freshly posted zoning documents.
The Neo-Gothic high-rise at 212 Fifth Avenue has occupied a wedge-shaped plot just north of Madison Square Park since 1912. It once held furniture and garment manufacturers, who had their offices on the upper floors and massive showrooms on the lower ones. Now, Madison and Thor Equities are converting the 24-story building to condos, and they’re restoring the landmarked limestone facade and cornices in the process. YIMBY recently toured the property and got a close-up look at the restoration.
C.A. White Inc., based in New Haven, Conn., has filed applications for two residential buildings on a 27-foot-wide block-thru lot at 21 West 17th Street and 16 West 18th Street, in the Flatiron District. The northern one would stand 13 stories tall and have 12 residential units, each averaging 1,863 square feet apiece. The southern one would be a 10-story, nine-unit structure with average residential units of 1,882 square feet, both indicative of condos. Morris Adjmi Architects is the applicant of record. Two- and three-story structures on the 18th and 17th Street ends, respectively, must first be demolished. Both addresses are in the Ladies Mile Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission would have to approve both the demolitions and new construction.
