Construction has topped out on the 54-story, 33-unit residential tower under development at 45 East 60th Street, located on the Upper East Side near Midtown. Progress on the structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the building, which goes by 520 Park Avenue, encompasses 251,892 square feet and rises 780 feet above street level to its pinnacle.
The apartments, averaging 5,395 square feet apiece, will be some of the most opulent condominiums in the city. The units will include full-floor simplex and two-floor duplex configurations, topped by a three-floor triplex penthouse. Zeckendorf Development is the developer, Robert A.M. Stern Architects is the design architect, and SLCE Architects is the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2018.
