This really is one of those towers that should have been 1000 ft instead of 400. That crown is gorgeous.
Morris Adjmi-Designed 30 East 31st Street Reaches 479′ Pinnacle In NoMad, Manhattan
Construction of the 40-story tall and diagrid-tipped 30 East 31st Street has finally topped out in NoMad. It is now showing off its unique crisscross exterior influenced by surrounding Gothic architecture from the 1920’s and ‘30s. Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible of the design. Along with topping out, glass installation is nearing the peak. Installation of the metal paneling has not yet started.
The 479-foot tall structure will yield 88,000 square feet, with 70,070 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 1,600 square feet for ground floor retail. 42 condominiums will be included, averaging 1,700 square feet apiece. Residential amenities will be included on the ground, second, and cellar levels. The lobby will include a curated artwork display.
Completion is expected by 2019.
They are adding some of the ornamentation near the setback. Glass is almost to the roof as well.
Artful architecture - this design looks so much better than that ’work in progress’ illustration originally posted on the construction fence.
Now that’s how you design a boxy building.
