New, 7 comments

The 65-story building is a joint venture between World Wide Group and Rose Associates and features 93 condos

One of the lower-profile skyscrapers rising on 57th Street in Midtown is quickly taking shape. Photos by NyConstructionPhoto have revealed that almost all of the facade work for the SOM-designed tower at 252 East 57th is complete.

The 65-story tower is being developed by World Wide Group and Rose Associates on a street that is mostly dominated by news of supertalls like One57 and the Nordstrom Tower.

There are a total of 93 condos in the undulating building at 252 East 57th Street, many of which are already in contract, according to StreetEasy.

Available apartments range from two-bedroom to five-bedroom condos, and prices start at $3.95 million. The largest condo currently available is a five-bedroom unit with just under 5,000 square feet of space that is asking $16.2 million.


Amenities in the building include a 75-foot swimming pool, a spa with a hydrotherapy circuit, and a dog grooming facility.

A video posted on the building's website gives you a sense of what being inside the building might be like.
