YIMBY recently went on a hard-hat tour of Madison House, aka 15 East 30th Street The slender 805-foot-tall tower is topped out as the tallest skyscraper in NoMad, standing 62 stories tall, and creates a distinct multi-pointed crown and silhouette on the Midtown skyline.

Queens Plaza Park’s glass façade is rapidly ascending at 27-29 Queens Plaza North in Long Island City.
