Last year, it was announced that Rockefeller Group and Mitsubishi purchased three adjoining lots in NoMad from a group of developers including Extell for a reported $74 million. Since then, there has been a speculation about their plans for the site, which includes 30-32, 34, and 36 East 29th Street between Madison and Park Avenues.
Now, it has been announced by Yimby and Curbed that the assemblage will be the site of a 46-story residential tower rising 599 feet and containing 123 apartments. The average apartment will be 1,363 square feet, and duplexes will occupy floors 39-40 and 41-42.
Amenities will include an accessory pool, fitness center, squash room, and storage for 70 bicycles. On the 34th floor, a resident lounge with two outdoor terraces will have a capacity for 20 people each.
The building’s architect of record is CetraRuddy, which designed One Madison Park at 23rd Street and Madison Avenue.
We hope for an innovative design from the firm that has other projects of design merit rising in the city, including 200 East 59th and 242 West 53rd Street illustrated below.
In the heart of NoMad, the new building will be three blocks from Madison Square Park and will benefit by the area’s outstanding transportation connections, including the No. 6, N, R, and W trains and the neighborhood’s outstanding collection of restaurants, unique shops, and exciting nightspots.
