Construction is now above street level and ongoing on the ground floor on the 52-story, 141-unit mixed-use tower under development at 281 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of East 30th Street in NoMad. Progress on the structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits have the tower measuring 266,932 square feet and rising 728 feet to its roof.
The residential units will be condominiums, spread across the eighth through 50th floors. They should average 1,485 square feet apiece. There will also be 7,927 square feet of retail space on the ground, second, and cellar levels. Residential amenities will be on the third through seventh floors.
