New renderings from Architecture Plus Information reveal lush amenity spaces and exterior enhancements at 780 Third Avenue, a 50-story office tower in Midtown East, Manhattan. Nuveen Real Estate, the current owner of the building, has invested roughly $40 million to create what it calls a “green oasis” for new and existing tenants.
Construction has topped out on 131-141 East 47th Street, a 34-story residential skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Lex 47th Property Owner LLC, the 500-foot-tall structure will yield 191 condominium units in studio to two-bedroom units, as well as 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Hopson Development Holdings is developing the site, which was purchased from the original developers, New Empire Real Estate. Silverback Development was brought onto the project in 2020 but is now no longer part of the building. Structure Tech New York and Cauldwell Wingate are in charge of building the project, which is located between Lexington and Third Avenues.
Construction has topped out on 244 East 52nd Street, a seven-story condominium building in Midtown East. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects for Minrav Development, the 26,000-square-foot structure will yield 15 residential units, a cellar level, a 30-foot-long rear yard, and a rooftop terrace. DCG is the general contractor for the property, which is being built on a 5,000-square-foot plot located between Second and Third Avenues. Sales and marketing will be handled by REUVENI, the first project for the company since partnering with Coldwell Banker Warburg on April 12.
Construction is continuing to ascend on 270 Park Avenue, JPMorgan Chase‘s new 60-story supertall headquarters in Midtown East. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners and developed by Tishman Speyer, the 1,388-foot-tall skyscraper will yield 2.5 million square feet of office space and will set the record for the tallest New York City building to be fully powered by a hydroelectric power plant. 270 Park Avenue is rising on a full-block parcel bound by Park Avenue to the east, Madison Avenue to the west, East 47th Street to the south, and East 48th Street to the north.
