NEW YORK | 262 Fifth Avenue | 305m | 1001ft | 54 fl | Demo

Israeli-Russian billionaire plans 54-story NoMad tower
http://therealdeal.com/2016/09/23/ru...y-nomad-tower/

Quote:
NoMad is getting yet another skyscraper. An entity affiliated with Israeli-Russian billionaire Boris Kuzinez filed plans Friday for a 54-story mixed-use tower at 262 Fifth Avenue at West 29th Street, according to a permit application.
Kuzinez bought the site and two neighboring lots for $59 million earlier this year, as The Real Deal previously reported.
The new filing lists Yoram Barel, who works for Kuzinez’s company, as the owner’s representative.
Plans call for a 150,018-square-foot building, including 41 apartments and 10,850 square feet of retail space in the basement, first and second floors.
A duplex will occupy the full fifth and sixth floor, while the seventh through 21st floors and 23rd through 36th floors will each feature a full-floor apartment. More duplex apartments are planned for the 38th through 45th floors. The building will also include a pool, gym and outdoor area on the fourth floor, the filing shows.
Once a mid-rise neighborhood, NoMad has seen a flurry of skyscraper construction in recent years.
A mockup of what it would look like. Lots of activity around Nomad lately, About time.



Skyline-altering tower to rise 928 feet along Fifth Avenue in Nomad

Quote:
A near supertall skyscraper is coming to Nomad, according to a recent Department of Buildings filing for 262 Fifth Avenue. Boris Kuzinez, an Israeli-Russian billionaire, submitted plans last week for a 54-story, 928-foot-tall mixed-use tower on the southwest corner of Fifth Avenue and 29th Street where a trio of pre-war buildings currently stand. The tower will certainly make a dent on the NYC skyline, and will be the tallest structure between Midtown and Downtown if it wraps before several other projects now in the works

Well, among the assemblage is a lovely 12 story office tower which will be a loss. I can't say much about the design because the rendering is pretty crude right now but it seems uninspired and bland. Also I'm never a fan of buildings that block ESB sightlines. On top of all this, only 41 condos for such a tall building?

The site is the three buildings shown on the far left at 0:03 across the street from the church.

It's like Tower Verre but all glass. It's not bad. It's bloking the ESB views indeed, but that will happen eventually.

NYGuy over at SSP dug this up -- based on this FAA report, looks like this is going supertall!
New height: 1050 ft.




Now let's just hope the architecture lives up to its prominent location on the skyline. It's going to anchor a new and growing cluster in Midtown South, so I really want to see a landmark design.

This will be another slender giant.
I can't really judge the design as this is just a mock up.

A supertall near ESB, I predict an average of two erbse posts per page. Anyway, I guess now it's settled that the Midtown skyline is moving South to its little sibling.

The Midtown Skyline to simply expanding with Hudson Yards and Manhattan West to the West, the 57th street cluster to the north and several on 52nd and 53rd street, and this cluster closer to the ESB. I hope someone has the ability to include all of the towers in a skyline rendering because there are at least 20 supertalls or almost supertalls coming to just Midtown.

been to new york the last week and that area would really do well with more tall buildings. The empire state building feels a bit too lonely hope 15 penn will one day start as well.

Nothing 15 Penn size, but 15 West 30th, 281 Fifth, 3 West 29th, and 8 West 30th as well as at least 1 other are all in the 700-800 foot range, all within a 7 or 8 block area nearby. Several others will soon join them further West once they finally sell and demolish the many parking garages close to Penn Station.

The two corner buildings are ready to come down. The taller building next to them is not ready yet...

Skinny supertall tower by Meganom unveiled for New York
https://www.dezeen.com/2017/05/31/sk...sidential-usa/







Quote:
Moscow-based studio Meganom has been tapped to design its first US project – a slender, 305-metre residential skyscraper planned for Midtown Manhattan.

The supertall tower, called 262 Fifth Avenue, is slated to rise in the Nomad district near Madison Square Park. The skyscraper will ascend to 1,001 feet (305 metres) and will be "unlike anything else built in New York", according to the team.

"A progressive example of forward-thinking and contemporary design, it will include several 'firsts' in terms of its design and environmental sustainability features," said the team.

The slim skyscraper by Meganom will occupy a parcel that spans from 260 to 264 Fifth Avenue. Two vacant structures are being demolished to make way for the tower, while a historic, 12-storey limestone building will be integrated into the skyscraper's base.

The project will be Meganom's first in America. Founded in 1998, the Moscow-based architecture and urban design firm was cofounded by Yury Grigoyan and lya Kuleshov.

The firm's recent commissions include an extension to the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the renovation of the Kremlin Museum and the creation of a new masterplan for Gorky Park – all located in Moscow.

"Meganom is virtually unknown in the West, yet have tackled some of the biggest and most complex projects in Russia," said the team.

For the Manhattan project, the studio has conceived a narrow tower wrapped in aluminium and glass.

The eastern facade will feature oversized and perforated porthole windows. On the north and south elevations, floor-to-ceiling windows will offer residents expansive views of the city.

The tower will be topped with a rectilinear crown that will serve as a viewing area. "At its summit, a soaring metal frame will create a striking arched observation deck atop the skyscraper," said the architects.

The tower's form is influenced by its structural system. A mechanical core will run up the west side of the tower, as opposed to the centre, which will enable column-free living spaces.

"The form of the skyscraper is inspired by a unique structural system that separates the building's functioning core from its living spaces, creating expansive, unobstructed, column-free and customisable full-floor residences – an inventive design solution unprecedented in a New York high-rise," said the team.

Demolition work recently got underway on the site. New York-based firm SLCE is serving as architect of record, and WSP is providing infrastructure and engineering services.

It reminds me of a residential twin of Fosters 425 Park Avenue. It also has a japanese touch to it. Lets wait for more renders and such. :-) Another supertall for NYC.

Here a full size render.

Wow! It's so delicate. And mercifully it's nothing like the weird, curved glass scimitar that was in those placeholder renders. Should be a nice complement to the other ultra-thin towers rising around Manhattan. And hopefully, because it's so slender, it won't block the view of ESB from quite so many southerly angles.

My one major quibble: by hanging the floors off to one side of the core (which is quite smart in terms of opening up floors for residents to have column-free floorplans and unobstructed views) it means we're going to have a 1000-foot blank wall on the Western face. Here's hoping they find some way to make it look even half-interesting... but the fact that they haven't included any renders from the West does not give me much confidence.

hopefully some ghost lighting will be included on those blank walls... this must be the least attractive supertall proposed in NYC.

So far I like what I'm seeing, especially the preservation of the twelve-story mid-rise's facade. I'd like to see more renders from other sides.
