I wonder if the actual structure will extend to 31st St at the base or if there will be a courtyard with a set back entrance at 31st. This diagram suggests the latter.

Also, the rendering of the building shows that the upper tower portion is clearly set back from 31st, though obviously, we can't ascertain anything about the lower portion or the street-level base.

Another pretty slender tower. The site is only 75 ft wide.

I don't understand your obsession with box=bad, the only buildings I can think of going up in NYC that are boxes is 432 PA, and maybe Nordstrom, though you like Nordstrom!! Other than those all other projects over 800' I can think of have some design other than a "box".

JD Carlisle, Fosun’s building on stilts rankles neighbors
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...ted-skyscraper



Quote:
A plan to jack a new condo tower 155 feet above its neighbors has sparked a millionaires' catfight over views, values and city building regulations.

Manhattan developer JD Carlisle, partnering with Shanghai investor Fosun Group, is using a new and increasingly common trick in the architectural playbook, effectively putting its building on stilts and vaulting the property over the roofline of a neighboring hotel to give each of its apartments a view of the New York City skyline.

The first floor of apartments in the tower at 30th Street and Madison Avenue will be at least 155 feet above the street, and the building will top out at 760 feet—more than 70 stories high by conventional measures. The apartments will reach that level by resting on a series of three cavernous floors with ceilings averaging 44 feet high. These floors will house ventilation and other systems, and will themselves be perched on a 23-foot base.

That has residents of a conventional 55-story condo building, called the Sky House Condominium, up in arms. Their views would be marred by the new tower.

Planning expert George Janes, who's been hired by Sky House, noted the height-raising design in an April 25 letter to the Department of Buildings.

"The proposed building has an extremely large 'structural void,'" he wrote in a complaint being reviewed by the department. Janes wants the city to force a redesign of the tower on a number of grounds, including the mechanical space.

"Right above the base, you have essentially a monolith that goes up to 15 stories," Janes said. "This violates all kinds of urban design standards: You want eyes on the street; you want windows and transparency to give the street vibrancy."

Fosun declined to comment; JD Carlisle did not respond to a request for comment by press time.

Building on stilts is the latest method developers are using to raise the height of their residential projects. At 220 Central Park South and 520 Park Ave., mechanical spaces are housed at the bases of the buildings on floors with ceilings at least 20 feet high. Raising the ceiling height doesn't count against the square footage that a developer is allotted, and allows them to create a pedestal on which to stack more high-floor apartments whose expansive views command higher prices.
Seems like this one will be 760'

City stops work on Manhattan luxury-apartment tower
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...TATE/160709988

Quote:
The city stopped work on a proposed 760-foot-tall luxury-condominium building at East 30th Street and Madison Avenue last week—a small victory for residents of a neighboring condo tower who raised a number of concerns with the new development's design.

The project’s developers, Manhattan-based JD Carlisle and Shanghai-based investment firm Fosun Group, ran afoul of complex laws governing the size of a small outdoor space, an inspector from the city’s Department of Buildings found. In this case, the space is on the second floor and is called an outer court. According to the law, such a space needs to be at least 10 feet wide. The project is now on hold until the partnership meets with the city to remedy the issue, which could include changing the building’s design. Otherwise, the firms will have their permit revoked.

JD Carlisle referred comment to Fosun, whose spokesman did not respond to a request for comment by press time.

The city rejected several other complaints filed by residents of a nearby luxury tower, called Sky House Condominium. For instance, owners there also objected to JD Carlisle's and Fosun's plan to essentially put their building on stilts—a new tactic being used by luxury developers to raise their apartments higher in the air and provide buyers better views.

In this case, JD Carlisle and Fosun planned for several cavernous floors near the building’s base to house nonresidential components such as mechanical systems. By stretching the ceiling heights on these floors to an estimated 44 feet, the developers helped create a 155-foot pedestal on which to build the apartments. That height is just above the roof line of the Chandler Hotel next door.

A planner hired by the Sky House condo association said this so-called "structural void" was poor urban design that subtracted from the livelihood of the street. But the Department of Buildings said zoning laws do not regulate the height of ceilings for mechanical spaces, or the amount of mechanical space that can be stuck into an apartment tower such as this one. Thus it had no objection to this aspect of the tower's design.

The condo board may appeal the department’s ruling.
I'm not really a fan of this tower so I gladly welcome this and any opportunity to modify it for the better.

New Look For 15 East 30th Street, 750-Foot Condo Tower In NoMad
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/07/new-...ndo-tower.html



Quote:
It’s been over a year since YIMBY revealed 15 East 30th Street, the 750-foot condo tower under construction between Fifth and Madison avenues in NoMad. Now, we have a fresh rendering of the building, which was posted on the construction fence yesterday.

The latest building permits show that the tower will reach exactly 756 feet into the air, putting it in the ranks of Carnegie Hall Tower (757 feet) and City Spire Center (814 feet). The structure will eventually top out at 51 stories and span 360,000 square feet. 180 apartments will fill 295,970 square feet of residential space, for an average unit of 1,644 square feet. The ground floor will host 7,500 square feet of retail, divided between three storefronts.

This seems like a nothingburger frankly. And you can't be 'On Hold' if you weren't 'U/C' in the first place.

But it says they had already put in the foundation. Does that mean prep then?

15 East 30th Street Ready to Rise in Midtown Manhattan

Quote:
Following the consolidation and subsequent demolition of a $102 million parcel of four properties located along 30th and 31st Streets between Fifth and Madison Avenues in the NoMad district of Midtown Manhattan, construction is set to begin at the site of 15 East 30th Street. Designed by Handel Architects for JD Carlisle Development and the Fosun Group, the soon-to-rise 51-storey and 180-unit luxury condo tower will occupy an irregular plot of land, with retail frontage along Madison Avenue, and entrances on both 30th and 31st Streets, with the tower itself set back from the street.

Wouldn't those caissons mean this tower is now U/C?

I like how they add such tall towers everywhere possible. Since land is a scarce here, i guess this thin skyline defining towers will be a new NY thing.
