118 East 59th Street Appears to Be Manhattan’s First Major Casualty of Chinese Capital Crackdown, in Midtown East

The last update YIMBY had for 118 East 59th Street was back in July of 2015, when the SCDA Architects-designed tower launched its promotional website and renderings. Now, the Midtown East site has been cleared of the previous buildings that once stood, and is a partially excavated open pit, replete with its own lake and new surrounding greenery. Permits were filed for the 470-foot, 38-story residential tower back in September 2014.
