Exclusive Reveal for Koreatown’s First Residential Skyscraper at 316 Fifth Avenue, by Kohn Pedersen Fox
BY Nikolai Fedak
July 9, 2018

Permits for the project were filed back in July of 2017 and show a 39-story building with a predominantly residential makeup of 27 full-floor or larger condominiums. That component will total 52,340 square feet, while a commercial-retail base will have 6,809 square feet on the first two floors.

The base will be topped by an amenity space with terraces for the residential portion of the project, with mechanical levels interspersed up above until the full-floor units begin on the 8th story. Two duplex penthouses will occupy the 33rd through 36th floors, while the uppermost levels will hold additional mechanical functions.

While the filings with the Department of Buildings indicate a top-floor height of 539 feet, the first rendering for the design by Kohn Pedersen Fox seemingly shows some architectural flourish at the parapet, which could yield a final pinnacle between 550 and 600 feet above street level.
Hoping it really does go above 600ft, this tower needs all the height it can get!

Sweet and sour.

Those beaux arts buildings would have looked amazing preserved as facades at the base of a soaring glass tower. Oh well, why do that when you can go Taliban on it and haul it to the dump?
You slip me the cash and I'll slip you the wiener. <><><><><><>IMPEACHMENT NOW!

For me it can be reduced to this: For every personal freedom we gained from the automobile, we lost in social cohesion.
