New Rafael Vinoly Skyscraper Will Join A Bevy of New Towers Planned for the Upper East Side
December 28, 2016
Quote:
With the inauguration of the first leg of the Second Avenue Subway slated for New Year’s Day, a bevy of residential projects began erupting in the nearby area. Next door at the corner of East 62nd Street and Second Avenue, John Pappas is constructing a 10-story residential building with six units; Real Estate Inverlad is beginning construction on a Manuel Glas-designed 29-story condominium at 1059 Third Avenue; and at the corner of 59th Street and Third Avenue a 30-story condo, developed by Harry Macklowe and designed by CetraRuddy, is rising brick-by-brick.

^ a 10 story building with 6 units?? man, unreal. with how rare land is on manhattan, on might almost start to thing that the most transit rich place in north america should be building to a higher degree of population density and restricting the shift of the most central portion of the island to a preserve of the global ultra-rich.

^ I agree there. They definitely need to increase the density within Manhattan apartment units and stop selling the heart of the city to the super rich exclusively, who stay at the place for just some days or weeks a year. It sucks the life out of NY's heart. Despite getting more and more buildings, Manhattan really starts to feel dead and sterile.

249 East 62nd: Vinoly's New UES Tower to Have Units Buoyed on Octagonal Core

249 East 62nd: Vinoly's New UES Tower to Have Units Buoyed on Octagonal Core

The Department of Buildings has found Real Estate Inverlad’s soaring residential project at 249 East 62nd Street compliant with the city’s zoning laws. The customary ZD1 diagram is now on file, giving us our first look at the tower’s proposed bulk,
yard, and street plantings. It reveals the skyscraper will ingeniously prop
up many its units via an octagonally-shaped core, thus granting them
extraordinary views over their Upper East Side neighbors towards Central Park and the East River.

Weird. But with quality cladding I might really like it.
