160 East 22nd Street Ushers in the Age of the Cantilever

New, 5 comments

The Landmarks Preservation Commission's recent of approval of two projects involving cantilevers—COOKFOX's 39-41 West 23rd Street and, more significantly, Extell's 217 West 57th Street, which will loom over the neighboring individually landmarked American Fine Arts Society—had preservationists worrying that cantilevering shiny new towers over historic buildings could become the new norm for developers. And, right on cue, here's 160 East 22nd Street, a new project from Toll Brothers. New York Yimby snapped some photos of the currently-under-construction 81-unit building that hit the market back in April, the southern portion of which hangs over the neighboring two-story townhouse, extending 25 feet in the air. (Click the photo to make it big.)

The Age of the Cantilever is upon us.
