NEW YORK| 821 United Nations Plaza | 32 fl | Pro

First Look at Turkey’s 32-Story Midtown East Consulate Building


A new, 32-story building is set to rise on the east side's Consulate Row. A press release from Perkins Eastman says that the firm's received the go-ahead to move forward with the Turkevi Center, a 200,000 square foot mission, consulate, and residential building for the Republic of Turkey. The Turkevi Center will stand at 821 United Nations Plaza, at the corner of 46th Street and First Avenue, and "feature prominent loggias along the upper floors of the south and east faces, and be stacked atop a podium wrapped in perforated metal paneling."

Perkins Eastman says the building's design, rendered here, is in part modeled after the Turkish crescent. In addition to the residential space for staff and visitors, the building will also have passport and visa branch offices, conference rooms, a multi-purpose prayer room, a fitness center, an auditorium, and underground parking, the press release says.

Perkins Eastman was tapped for the project in October. The building is scheduled to be complete in 2018 and will seek LEED silver status.
