NEW YORK | 235 East 44th Street | 272ft | 22 fl | U/C


A joint venture between the Republic of Senegal and investor Ron Yeffet of construction company GSR Concrete is looking to bring a 22-story mixed-use tower to a vacant site at 227 East 44th Street.

Senegal, which owned the development site outright, transferred a 50 percent interest in the lot to a LLC linked to Yeffet in December for $25 million, according to public records filed with the city today. The new tower would have 20 residential units, plans filed with the city’s Department of Buildings show. Read further in the linked article. :-)

Site as of January 25th 2014

Construction Update: 235 East 44th Street

Permits indicate 235 East 44th Street will stand 21 stories and 272 feet tall, with 71,914 square feet divided between twelve ‘dwelling units,’ language not typically used in association with commercial structures. The Schedule A adds even more confusion, with the entirety of the building divided between various office amenities, including ‘Class B rooms’ and ‘accessory lounges.’

Regardless of the filings, the tower will apparently be split between residences and office space. Renderings are not all-encompassing, and only give a peek at the new tower’s lower levels. Still — if the facade is any indication — the bulk of the project appears to be residential, and units will likely average approximately 5,000 square feet each.

We are floating in space...

Looks nice! The curved facade is a nice touch.
