160 Madison Ave, Gets $210 Million In Financing



Quote:
New renderings of the long-stalled development at 160 Madison Avenue have been posted at Metal Yapi, which is apparently the company that will be fabricating the skyscraper’s facade. SLCE is the architect, and the design is utterly and completely underwhelming; unfortunately, 160 Madison looks to be a completely generic glass box, and apparently setting the tower off at an angle relative to the street is the only ‘creativity’ the architects could muster. The developer is JD Carlisle, and 160 Madison will be residential.

If the renderings are accurate, the real problem at 160 Madison is the tower’s treatment of the neighborhood street-wall. Madison Avenue has one of the best, most intact street-walls in New York, especially in the vicinity of this tower – yet the above images show 160 Madison sitting atop a meager two-story podium. Not only is the tower component of 160 Madison disappointing; the base is actually offensive, and would be very detrimental to the aesthetics and urban fabric of the neighborhood.

New DOB permits for 160 Madison were denied on Tuesday, and there is a definite dissonance between the 31-floor building on-file and the tower depicted in the renderings, which is roughly forty stories in height. The original plan for the site called for an Ismael Leyva-designed tower – which continues to live on the firm’s website – but that design has seemingly been shelved.

[...]

Construction Update: 160 Madison Avenue



Quote:
New permits have been filed for 160 Madison Avenue, which is already under construction; the documents reveal a minor height increase for the project, which has been upped from 379 to 452 feet. The architect of record is SLCE, and the developer is JD Carlisle. An insider tipped YIMBY that the development’s planned insides have also changed, and it will have rentals rather than condominiums.

The alterations to the tower’s plans are relatively minor, and the height increase means the building will eventually stand 41 stories tall — or 42, including the rooftop bulkhead. Construction has proceeded very rapidly over the past several months, and as of November’s update, the crane had only just been installed. Now, 160 Madison stands approximately one-third of its final height.

It's already that tall? Awesome!
1 floor per week, more or less.

Great final design, very classy. Much better than the one on page 1!

Walked by the site today and I was surprised the size of the site. Basically it almost took the whole length between 33rd and 32nd on Madison. They are moving fast and I think this will be a nice addition here.


opening between 2 buildings on 32nd street


from 33rd street and Madison

Almost the same angle as the rendering.

It will be a nice addition to that area.

Looks good! Pretty hefty tower...
I don't think the podium "relation to surroundings" will be anywhere near as bad as some people claim it will be.

I like that people are still designing buildings that are angular shapes much like those in the 70s and 80s like 101 park Avenue, instead of trying to cram a building into every corner of a site.

Yeah, it seems to reference some 80s design but that's not a bad thing!

I think it's a nice idea to have that corner cut away, but they still could have used the space on the other side, making it a five sided tower like the JP Morgan Chase Tower in Houston.
