Renderings have been revealed of a 1,001-foot-tall residential tower at 262 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of West 29th Street in NoMad. Moscow-based Meganom is responsible for the architecture, Dezeen reported. The renderings appear to resemble plans YIMBY reported on last year for a 54-story, 41-unit mixed-use building.
The plans, which have not been approved by the Department of Buildings, would encompass 190,601 square feet. There would be 10,850 square feet of of retail space across the ground, second and cellar floors, followed by residential units on the fifth through 52nd floors. The apartments would average a spacious 3,394 square feet apiece.
Five Point Development is the developer. SLCE Architects is the architect of record and WPS is responsible for engineering work. The existing 12-story commercial building at 260 Fifth Avenue would be incorporated into the new building. Two five-story buildings at 262-264 Fifth Avenue are currently being demolished.
