Rafael Viñoly’s planned 700-foot-tall Nomad condo began going vertical this past March, and now developers Lendlease and the Victor Group have unveiled a teaser site for the project, and released a new rendering.

The project came about after the developers shelled out $99 million for three lots near East 30th Street and Fifth Avenue in the summer of 2014. At the time it was one of the priciest such transactions in the city.

Plans for the building were filed the following summer, and as we can see now, some details have changed, slightly. For instance, the condo count has gone down from 141 to 130, but the floor count has gone up from 52 stories to 55. The rendering released at that time is similar to the one we see now, but this one just has a more polished look to it—though to be honest, it does look very much like a gray version of 432 Park Avenue, from a distance.

The project is still pending approval from the Attorney General’s office, so it’s not yet clear when sales will get underway, and the developers haven’t divulged pricing details yet either. The condo previously took 281 Fifth Avenue as its address, but going forward it will be know as 277 Fifth Avenue. The first set of residents are expected to move in by the fall of 2018.
