262 Fifth Avenue
NoMad's Tallest Skyscraper Starts to Rise
General contractor, , has shared a photo showing initial superstructure work at 262 Fifth Avenue; the site of a 60-story residential skyscraper, going up in Manhattan's NoMad neighborhood.
Despite reaching halfway to the heavens, the tower will only contain condo units. In fact, most of these units will total well over 3,000 square feet; or roughly the same size as a suburban family home.
Tenant amenities are to include a pool, a fitness center, and two outdoor terraces. The higher terrace will be located on the roof and will act as a private viewing deck, accessible to residents only.
Apart from its slender stature, one of the tower's most distinctive aesthetic features is the addition of circular windows surrounded by stainless steel facade panels on the rear wall. It's a fun design touch that screams art deco character and it proves that modern architecture doesn't always have to forget the past in order to portray the future.
Designed by Moscow-based architectural firm, Meganom, with SLCE as the architect of record, 262 Fifth Avenue will total square feet. Construction is expected to complete sometime in the summer of 2023.
