Tower of Askew Stacked Blocks Offers More Glimpses Inside

New, 14 comments

The 40-story building that Euro Properties is putting up on East 59th Street is raring to take shape, now that the low-rises that once occupied the parcel between Park and Lexington avenues are reduced to rubble. 6sqft photographed the construction site, unearthed two new interior renderings, and noticed that a teaser site is now live. It has both English and Chinese versions, which makes sense given that Euro Properties is a Hong Kong-based firm—and that Chinese investment in NYC real estate is all the rage these days. Soo Chan designed a facade that contains four chunks of 10 floors each, set askew from each other and totaling 500 feet tall; the ceilings will range from 10 to 20 feet tall in the 29 apartments. Expect sales to launch this fall, and the building to be ready for occupancy in 2017.

As per 6sqft:

Above, 70,000 square feet is dedicated to residential use with apartments averaging 2,000 square feet in size and ceiling heights averaging more than 12 feet. Floors 6-31 will be single, full-floor residences, while floors 32-38 will feature two duplexes and a trophy 5,000-square-foot triplex. ... [O]ne-bedroom homes will start at $2.8 million, two-bedrooms at $3.6 million, the two 2,989-square-foot duplexes for $15.5 million and $16.5 million, and the triplex penthouse at $30 million. The lobby:
