Smile NEW YORK ​| 249 East 62nd Street | 330 FT | 28 FLOORS

New Rafael Vinoly Skyscraper Will Join A Bevy of New Towers Planned for the Upper East Side
December 28, 2016
Quote:
With the inauguration of the first leg of the Second Avenue Subway slated for New Year’s Day, a bevy of residential projects began erupting in the nearby area. Next door at the corner of East 62nd Street and Second Avenue, John Pappas is constructing a 10-story residential building with six units; Real Estate Inverlad is beginning construction on a Manuel Glas-designed 29-story condominium at 1059 Third Avenue; and at the corner of 59th Street and Third Avenue a 30-story condo, developed by Harry Macklowe and designed by CetraRuddy, is rising brick-by-brick.

Development team plans 83-unit resi tower in Lenox Hill

Quote:
Developers Chance Gordy and Steven Mills are teaming up again to build a new 32-story residential tower in Lenox Hill.

The developers filed plans on Tuesday for 249 East 62nd Street, a development site the pair acquired in March for $64.3 million, documents filed with the city show. Jay Bargmann, managing partner and vice president of Rafael Viñoly’s firm, is the architect of record. A spokesman for the firm said Viñoly — the starchitect behind 432 Park Avenue — is not involved in the project, and it’s likely that Bargmann is working on it solo. Bargmann wasn’t available on Tuesday to discuss the tower, and the developers didn’t immediately return calls seeking additional information.

The new building will span 101,154 square feet, with 83 resident units across 98,593 square feet, according to the permit application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings. An additional 2,561 square feet will be reserved for ground floor retail. The property was part of a portfolio once owned by the Elghanayan real estate family. S.W. Management’s Stanley Wasserman picked up two buildings in the portfolio for more than $300 million in 2015.

Can the title be corrected. "sreet" does not equal street.

sreet is when someone is high but meant to say "sweet".

249 East 62nd: Vinoly's New UES Tower to Have Units Buoyed on Octagonal Core

249 East 62nd: Vinoly's New UES Tower to Have Units Buoyed on Octagonal Core
September 27, 2017

https://www.cityrealty.com/nyc/marke...nal-core/13722

Quote:
The Department of Buildings has found Real Estate Inverlad’s soaring residential project at 249 East 62nd Street compliant with the city’s zoning laws. The customary ZD1 diagram is now on file, giving us our first look at the tower’s proposed bulk,
yard, and street plantings. It reveals the skyscraper will ingeniously prop
up many its units via an octagonally-shaped core, thus granting them
extraordinary views over their Upper East Side neighbors towards Central Park and the East River.

This section of Town is going to look like Waterline Square on the other side of the island...but on most likely a wider scale.

If you want to call it thus, "height-geekiness" isn't exactly what's being marketed here.

"Density-geekiness" is far better term. While, say, 700' can be fairly deemed "supertall" here, it's going to boil down to how much...and most especially, the quality of what gets built.

Score another one for Sr. Viñoly here. Whereas he aimed for elegance and contextual setting with 277 5th, he expertly plays a "method to the madness" card here, and at a spot where it's going to get some serious attention, even as projects of similar height and designing merit sprout up nearby.

This is architectural genius at its...well...funkiest.

Sweet jesus, looks like a Forerunner construct from the Halo Universe.

NY could use a little more futuristic works.

And again...at the high risk of waxing obnoxious, I feel compelled to reiterate a point I harped on in another thread.

While I understand that contextual accuracy isn't part of the overall marketing strategy in this particlar niche of the overall field of work, a hint of it should at least be attempted.

It is what it is bla blah ga ga; but simply begging the question IMHO doesn't explain why, for instance, a skyscraper design for NYC gets superimposed over a pano of downtown Chicago which, by admission of reputable posters in this subforum, has been perpitrated.

Apropos of this discussion, superimposing a render of this or any tower proposed for the UES over a pano of Lower Manhattan is misleading, pure and simple.

I shall say no more of it. ::And there was much rejoicing...::

It's always interesting when seeing renderings depicting a tower in one city, but the background is like 500 miles away. Us city fanatics pick it up, but I bet some won't even notice it. They'd think Houston looks like Chicago or see a rendering of a Miami proposal, superimposed with a Houston background.

But yet again, I've run into people that didn't know where 1 WTC was or if it was built. Lots of clueless folks out there.

Should just make it an entirely extruded octagonal or cylindrical tower, what they have now is just an eyesore of epic levels.

Something like an upside down bowling pin?

Agreed. I was trying to place it... That's an apt comparison. It's very retro.

As a bowler of 30 years...that's going to be hard to unsee. Though an hour glass figure would be appealing.
