Cause the Upper East Side is home to some of the most powerful and wealthiest Nymbys in the city, they don't want their views interrupted or their quality of life disrupted. If you're a developer you'd be crazy to try going against that.
But again, it's a great neighborhood, after all that's why I live there.

it is a bad picture, but the tower was suppose to be similar to ESB, but without a spire. it is a gem of art deco and it is a pity no one revisits the possibility of building it.

This tower is really like a castle in the sky. But those four corners could really use something like the copper tips of the Waldorf Astoria:

Details, Rendering Revealed For Zeckendorfs' 520 Park Avenue



Quote:
New York's newest super expensive condo tower has revealed itself to the world. Today the Journal brings us an exterior rendering and oodles of details about the planned 51-story tower on East 60th Street and Park Avenue. Designed by the limestone-loving architect Robert A.M. Stern, 520 Park will have just 31 units, one of which will be a mega penthouse "priced at considerably more than $100 million." Obviously. It will be a 12,400-square-foot triplex with a private terrace and will likely be priced at more than $10,000 per square foot. The "smallest" of the units will clock in at 4,600-square-feet, and they will each occupy a full floor and have a private elevator landing. And prices will start around, brace, $27 million. There will also be seven six-bedroom duplexes. We can't wait for floorplans.

Developers Arthur and William Lie Zeckendorf worked with Stern on the wildly successful 15 Central Park West and record-setting 18 Gramercy Park, so the team knows how to build a blockbuster. The partial rendering shows an 85-foot wide building with large windows and a "temple-like structure" on the roof that hides the mechanicals. To construct the building, the Zeckendorfs cobbled together air rights beside the site (and bought the Park Avenue address from a church), and the tower will "cantilever over much of the Grolier Club" on East 60th Street (not the church, as previously reported). As part of the agreement to obtain the extra development rights, the Zeckendorfs will fund affordable housing on the Upper East Side and make 520 Park environmentally friendly.

[...]









Lux! Lux! Lux!

I wasn't very impressed with the design of this tower until I saw those amateur renders and google models. It looks good, and will make an interesting counterpoint to (and lessen the impact of) 432 Park ave., looking from the north.

Hopefully one of these Stern Central Park towers will get the gold/brass treatment at the crown like 30 Park Place is getting that will match the brass Terracotta treatment of the Steinway Tower gracing the central park skyline.

Nice. Things are starting to pick up here.

Here's a pic I'd taken from a rooftop yesterday. There is work being done with a building across the street from 45E60th (520 Park). It looks like they are enlarging the building with lots of floors. Does anyone know what building this is?
