While Robert A.M. Stern may be the defacto authority on building with limestone, he isn't the only one to do it, and today we're reminded by the anticipated sales launch at COOKFOX's 29-story limestone and zinc creation at 301 East 50th Street. The in-construction building will bring 57 eco-minded condos to the Turtle Bay section of Midtown East. Priced from $1.7 million, the dwellings will range from one- to four-bedrooms with the building's two full-floor penthouses asking around $10 million, TRD reports. The building's first apartment to hit the market is a 1,459-square-foot two-bedroom with 1,200-square-feet of terrace space, asking $2.95 million. Building amenities include a fitness and wellness center, cedar sauna, steam room, tea lounge, treatment room, and changing rooms. Amongst its green features, the site will have exterior sun shading to prevent heat from entering the building and reduce glare, energy-efficient heating and cooling, a filtered air system, a double water filtration system, and planted roof surfaces to absorb heat.
The jack-of-all-trades firm COOKFOX is responsible for both the building's interiors and exteriors. The project is being developed by CBSK Ironstate, also behind Tribeca's Reade Chambers.
