Condos at the Rafael Viñoly-designed Nomad tower, 277 Fifth Avenue, will ask from $1.9 million, the New York Times learned, after it recently stopped by the sales gallery for the project.
The 55-story condo is set to bring 130 apartments to the neighborhood, and the units here will come in a mix of one, two, and three bedrooms; and there are also plans for two penthouses.
Sales will likely launch soon now that the Attorney General’s office has approved the project’s $470 million offering plan. While we don’t have pricing info on all the units, two-bedrooms here will start from about $2.8 million.
What’s unique about the project is that all the apartments here will be corner units with two exposures, which the developers told The Times, will ensure that residents on the lower floors will also get more natural light. The developers have also purchased the surrounding air rights to ensure that residents here don’t lose their views; at least to the extent that that’s possible in New York City.
As for the finishes in the apartments, they will include wide-plank oak floors, 10-foot-tall ceilings, and open kitchens with white marble countertops. The interiors here are being designed by Jeffrey Beers International. As for the amenities the developers are keeping it relatively low-key with with a gym and sauna among the announced features so far. Developers say the neighborhood has a ton to offer in terms of amenities.
It’s been a little over a month since we checked in with the construction site, and already the building has gotten much taller, based on the construction site photo captured by The Times.
The project has been in the works since at least 2014 when the developers, the Victor Group, and Lendlease, purchased a group of lots near East 30th Street and Fifth Avenue for $99 million. Plans were filed in the summer 2015, and construction is expected to wrap sometime next year.
