Smile NEW YORK | 126 East 57th Street | 346 FT | 28 FLOORS

This tower, designed by Oda Architecture, is actually on 56th Street, on the opposite end of the same block as 425 Park Avenue. It will also be a little taller than the given height.

Great tower.

I wonder if the developers of the empty lot on 56th and Lex also acquired the old hotel on 57th. That old hotel is decent.

I really want the horrible NE corner of 57th and Lex to come down. It’s disgusting.

This is the crap I’m referring to, along with the little PoS to the east and the adjacent crap to the north on Lex.

Yeah, I hate that NE corner of 57th/Lex. I really hope that assemblage is eventually redeveloped with a major new tower.

The 56th Street tower seems fine, but way too short for the location. Stupid zoning.

Supposedly, there was a plan long ago to develop a twin of the amazing tower on the NW corner. That would have looked amazing.

I believe that Vornado owns a portion of that assemblage, though I don't know who owns the utter eyesore on 57th and Lex. It's unreal that such a heinous POS occupies such a prime spot.

Another PoS in this area that’s a PRIME development site is 460 Park. A 1,000’+ Stern with a seven star hotel, Uber fancy, boutique office space, and over the top condos should rise here.

I wouldn't tan there. Probably would come out with leprosy as a tan.

Slowly 57th is being cleaned up and a lot of these eyesores. In time, they will bite the dust.

Actually, I think that this project might suck if it includes the beautiful townhouses on E 57th. Anyway, Rosen is the brother-in-law of Sapir, who is another total putz.

Rotem Rosen plans 28-story Billionaires’ Row condo building
Rosen purchased assemblage for 145-unit building at East 57th St. and Lexington Ave. in 2019

Billionaires’ Row is about to get even bigger.

Real estate mogul Rotem Rosen’s MRR Capital has filed plans for a 28-story condo building in the famous corridor, according to Crain’s.

According to the plans, the building at 126 East 57th Street will consist of 145 condo units, all of which will be sold at market rate. The building will stand 346 feet tall and span approximately 205,000 square feet. Demolition at the site has begun, but there is no timeline estimate for construction. ODA is the architect of record.

A partnership led by Rosen and Israeli developer Zahi Hagag purchased a 13-parcel assemblage, including the development site and other properties stretching down Lexington Avenue toward East 56th Street, for $103.7 million in April 2019. The seller was Turkish development firm Kiska Development. At the time, it was clear that Rosen and his partners were planning on building a new residential tower.



On Billionaires’ Row, the condo building will face plenty of competition to lock in buyers, who have no shortage of options. Vornado’s 220 Central Park South and Extell Development’s One57 are both in the neighborhood. Macklowe Properties’ 432 Park Avenue is even closer, just a block away from the development site.

The development could be a welcome distraction for Rosen, who is in a protracted legal fight with Alex Sapir over the estate of Rosen’s former father-in-law, Tamir Sapir.

Permits Filed For 28-Story Tower At 126 East 57th Street In Midtown East

Quote:
Permits have been filed for a 28-story residential building at 126 East 57th Street on Billionaires’ Row in Midtown East, Manhattan. Located between Park and Lexington Avenues, the lot is two blocks south of the 59 Street-Lexington Avenue subway station, serviced by the 4,5, 6, N, R, and W trains. MRR Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 346-foot-tall development will yield 204,941 square feet, with 170,476 square feet designated for residential space and 4,056 square feet for commercial space. The building will have 145 residences, most likely condos based on the average unit scope of 1,175 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have two cellar levels but no accessory parking.

ODA Architecture is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits were filed in 2020 for the 15,220-square-foot lot. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

The Greatest City in the World!

I thought that they were going to raze the old hotel too. I’m glad that they’re not.

It looks nice, if a bit short.

Rotem Rosen faces holdout neighbor on Billionaires Row
Court filings over development depict a drawn-out negotiation to nowhere
New York
Jul. 19, 2022 03:48 PM
By Joe Lovinger | Research By Jay Young




Already this year, blue-chip developers have battled holdout tenants and holdout sellers — but how about a holdout neighbor?

MRR Development, the firm founded by Anand Mahindra, Rotem Rosen and Jerry Rotonda, has spent four years and nearly $100 million building a 10-lot assemblage on the corner on Lexington Avenue between East 56th and 57th streets. But before it can join the glass giants of Billionaires Row, the developer needs access to a squat building on the western edge of its assemblage, 124 East 57th Street.

That building owner isn’t playing ball, according to a request for entry filed with the New York State Supreme Court.

For a project like MRR’s 28-story, ODA Architecture-designed development, New York’s building code requires a pre-construction survey documenting the condition of all adjacent buildings. The firm will also need temporary access to its neighbor’s building to install netting and building protections to keep it and passersby safe during construction. The city won’t allow MRR to move forward on its project without these protections, and according to court filings, the neighbor has been anything but neighborly.


After months of fruitless negotiations, MRR is now asking the court to grant it access to the neighbor’s structure so it can conduct its pre-construction survey and get building.

Filings depict a numbingly repetitive negotiation between the two buildings that reads like something out of the movie “Groundhog’s Day.” As the lawyers for each building owner negotiated the terms of an access agreement, MRR’s attorney repeatedly asked for his counterpart’s input. But according to an email thread shared in the lawsuit, he heard nothing back.

In one instance, the developer’s lawyer sought comment on a draft agreement four different times between April 4 and April 19. The wait dragged on a month more as Bension DeFunis, in-house council for Solil Management working as the neighbor’s attorney, cited Passover and an emergency for the delays. DeFunis finally sent his comments on May 19.


“You have simply wholesale rejected nearly 100% of Project Owner’s edits,” wrote Eric Thorsen, an attorney from Quinn McCabe representing MRR, in a letter to DeFunis. “The edits you have made are nothing more than a reversion to your initial draft, with no substantive progress, and in certain respects backwards progress.”

Nice mirroring of 432 Park, but with more interesting massing.

New Renderings Released For ODA’s 126 East 57th Street Tower In Midtown East, Manhattan







Quote:
New renderings have been released for 126 East 57th Street, a 28-story residential tower on Billionaires’ Row in Midtown East, Manhattan. Designed by ODA Architecture and developed by MRR Development under the MRR 1326 LLC, the 346-foot-tall tower will yield 147 condominiums spread across 170,000 square feet with interiors by Gabellini Sheppard, as well as 5,000 square feet of retail space. WSP USA is the engineer, and Plaza Buildings is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of East 57th Street and Lexington Avenue.

Our last construction update from three weeks ago showed excavation beginning on the plot.

“This building brings a human scale, playfulness, and visual interest to this upscale corridor of 57th Street,” said Eran Chen, founder and executive director of ODA. “As New York City slowly transforms Midtown East to a residential destination, we strive to offer a contemporary outlook for the taste makers and young professional buyers who value high design.”

Nearly all of the homes will feature private outdoor terraces, which are scattered across the cubic setbacks of the massing in typical ODA style. Below are two new renderings of the middle levels looking north up Lexington Avenue, offering a better perspective of the living spaces.

Residential amenities are planned to occupy two below-grade levels and include an exercise room, a sports court, an indoor swimming pool, and a sauna and steam room. On the second floor will be a private lounge and kitchen connected to a furnished courtyard with an outdoor children’s playground, a communal greenhouse, and an outdoor cinema amphitheater overlooking the main entrance. The 11th floor will feature a 3,350-square-foot party room with a prep kitchen and a covered terrace with a bar and private cabanas.

The 28th and final floor will house penthouse units with access to private rooftop terraces via individual interior staircases. A separate communal rooftop will also offer seating and a grilling station.

The development is located two blocks south of the 59 Street-Lexington Avenue subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, and W trains. A completion date for 126 East 57th Street has yet to be announced.

This building is gorgeous.

That crappy Zimbabwean Consulate is getting redeveloped too, and the POS on 54th and Lex.
