NEW YORK | 125 West 31st | 650ft | 60 fl | Com

YET ANOTHER TOWER RISES IN NYC, very close to the Empire State buiding......this tower is very close to my office, so I will document its construction closely...





Project Description


The 21,979 s.f. project site is a thru block, running from 31st Street to 32nd Street located midblock between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue. West of the site is a lot containing the existing Church of Saint Francis of Assisi with the churches' existing 4 story rectory abutting the project site. Purchase of air rights from the Archdiocese, plus allotment of a portion of the projectsÆ program requirements to new facilities for Saint Francis of Assisi, contributes to the 574,000 gross s.f. building.

This includes a 5 story base continuous from 31st Street to 32nd Street with a tower set back approximately 85 feet from 31st Street and 48 feet from 32nd Street. The orientation and setbacks satisfy code and zoning requirements and maximize views, light and air. In addition to the new 41,465 gross s.f. facility for Saint Francis of Assisi, the building will provide 77,700 gross s.f. for The American Cancer Society, a 426,440 gross s.f. rental apartment tower, a 4,985 gross s.f. commercial estab.

This project is right near MSG, and I can still remember when I went there a year ago to see the bar that stood being demolished just before going to a Knicks game durring the last MLK Jr Day.

Nice

Looks like a mirror image of 2 Union square here in Seattle. Still looks like a nice building though

Nice building, hopefully being near ESB will help it not get lost in the skyline like most of the skyscrapers of this height do unfortunately.
