YIMBY last checked in on the 65-story, 268-unit residential tower being built at 252 East 57th Street, in Midtown East, back in October of 2015, when the structure topped out at 715 feet above street level. Since then, glass installation has been rapidly underway to encapsulate the residential interiors, which will eventually contain a total of 93 condominiums and 175 rental apartments. YIMBY now has close-up renderings of the 632,828-square-foot tower.
The cellar, ground, and second levels will contain a total of 27,726 square feet of commercial-retail. The amenities, many of which will be located on the 34th floor, include multiple lounges, a library, a theater, a fitness room, a pool and spa, a children’s playroom, a billiards room, a pet grooming center, an automated parking garage, private entertainment areas, and guest suites. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill designed the building and Daniel Romualdez is the interior architect. The developers are World Wide Group and Rose Associates. Occupancy is expected later this year.
