Not bad. Hard to tell from the render, though.
Foundation work:The first renderings for 959 First Avenue have been posted on-site, giving a detailed look at Toll Brothers City Living’s latest project to begin construction in Manhattan; Goldstein Hill & West is the architectural firm of record, per filings with the Department of Buildings.
Permits indicate the mixed-use structure will have 197,127 square feet in total, and 9,569 square feet will be dedicated to ground floor retail. The remainder of the project will be divided between 114 residences, and the 30-story building’s pinnacle will stand 333 feet above the street.
The Midtown East condo tower at 959 First Avenue near East 53rd Street has flown under the radar since developer Toll Brothers picked up the formerly stalled site in January 2013, but it's now on the verge of launching sales. The design team from Incorporated Architecture & Design shared dozens of new renderings of the 30-story tower, showing the condo interiors and amenity spaces, all of which look incredibly typical for a new condo development. The Sutton, as the tower is now known, will hold 114 units, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms, with prices ranging from $850,000 to more than $6 million.
