NEW YORK | 520 Fifth Ave | 280m | 920ft | 71 fl | Pro



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Demolition is finally complete.


Thor has simply revealed the retail base, but it will be topped by a roughly 200m structure with a hotel and condos. They bought a lot of air rights from the beautiful old building next door.



Design subject to change

We still don't know. The pre-crash proposal was for a tower of around 700'.

Source for this? Yimby had a post a while back that said only a six story structure will be built. Specifically, this:

Would be a huge shame if it's true.

A hotel and condo, the design of which has not yet been revealed, will rise above the retail base.

A new tower at 520 Fifth Avenue has been a long time coming, and Thor Equities has already released preliminary renderings of what the building’s retail podium will look like. But now, the first filings for the (likely) condominium portion of the development are up, and YIMBY can reveal that it will greatly exceed the previously estimated height, standing 71 stories and 920 feet to its roof.

Handel is listed as the architect of record, and the building will total 353,589 square feet, split between residential and commercial components. Per the Schedule A, the first 24 floors of the building will be dedicated to 156,024 square feet of commercial space, with a three-story retail podium giving way to amenities and a hotel, which will total 208 rooms.

The residential portion will measure 197,565 square feet and have 145 units, and starts on the 26th level with a full-floor apartment. The 27th floor will be shared by a gym and amenity spaces, and then besides occasional mechanicals, floors 28 through 70 will be divided between three units each.

Quick math reveals an average unit size of just over 1,300 square feet, and while that is large, it’s actually on the smaller side for super-luxe condo buildings currently rising in Manhattan. The project is located on the corner of 43rd Street and 5th Avenue, which is certainly a central location, though it would not command the premiums of a 57th Street address.

Still, 520 Fifth Avenue will be taller than almost all nearby buildings. And given that the DOB measures to the highest occupied floor, there is also a possibility that a crown element could bump the project above the 1,000′ mark.

The design architect has not yet been released, and no completion date has been announced, but one thing is certain: Midtown Manhattan’s residential boom continues at a breakneck pace.

I hope that with the crown it exceeds 1,000!

It would be great to get a roof height supertall here to help balance off the Bank of America Tower, 945' to its crown's height. The view of the ESB from 30 Rock shouldn't be in jeopardy, either.

The I'm pleased that these stunning buildings which are next to and across the street from 520 will have an amazing tower as their neighbor.

Next door



Across the street


P.S.: Here's the DOB permit:
http://a810-bisweb.nyc.gov/bisweb/Jo...ssdocnumber=05

The zoning docs don't show the tower portion, but it appears that the tower will rise from a very small portion of the retail base.

This building should be in the skyscraper section, not the highrise section. It's 920 ft. to roof per official NYC DOB filings.

Maybe even the supertall one if it does get a crown, which if it does I'm sure will guarantee it a little over 1,000 ft in total.

Nice! This along with Vanderbilt will help to balance the skyline out with the BoA Tower cluster from the north and south views!

Will also be a nice step up to Vanderbilt as well

I agree, Stig. The MTA HQ on Madison and 45th also should be around 300m.
