It looks pretty boxy now, although 756' is nice height near the ESB

That's a retarded plan. They're going to tear down a bunch of buildings and replace them with a 1 story base, on Madison Ave, 30th and 31st streets.

There could very well be a third building of 600-700+ feet going up a block and a half away on the NW corner of 28th/Broadway. Pretty decent size lot. Row of 1 story retail stores/building is already down and so is a nice size parking garage behind it. Good size lot.

Anyone hear of anything going up at this site?

Posted this on another site, but its food for thought.

Did some data mining, and fun fact, this when we factor in complete, and u/c, would only be the 44th tallest in the city IF it started construction like right now. Assuming nothing else from this point joined the pipeline.

756 feet only being the 44th tallest.

At a minimum, you'd have to have a tower of 1,047 ft to even be in the top 10.

Trick used to build higher angers neighbors



Quote:
A plan to jack a new condo tower 155 feet above its neighbors has sparked a millionaires' catfight over views, values and city building regulations.

Manhattan developer JD Carlisle, partnering with Shanghai investor Fosun Group, is using a new and increasingly common trick in the architectural playbook, effectively putting its building on stilts and vaulting the property over the roofline of a neighboring hotel to give each of its apartments a view of the New York City skyline.

The first floor of apartments in the tower at 30th Street and Madison Avenue will be at least 155 feet above the street, and the building will top out at 760 feet—more than 70 stories high by conventional measures. The apartments will reach that level by resting on a series of three cavernous floors with ceilings averaging 44 feet high. These floors will house ventilation and other systems, and will themselves be perched on a 23-foot base.

That has residents of a conventional 55-story condo building, called the Sky House Condominium, up in arms. Their views would be marred by the new tower.

Planning expert George Janes, who's been hired by Sky House, noted the height-raising design in an April 25 letter to the Department of Buildings.

"The proposed building has an extremely large 'structural void,'" he wrote in a complaint being reviewed by the department. Janes wants the city to force a redesign of the tower on a number of grounds, including the mechanical space.

"Right above the base, you have essentially a monolith that goes up to 15 stories," Janes said. "This violates all kinds of urban design standards: You want eyes on the street; you want windows and transparency to give the street vibrancy."

Fosun declined to comment; JD Carlisle did not respond to a request for comment by press time.

Building on stilts is the latest method developers are using to raise the height of their residential projects. At 220 Central Park South and 520 Park Ave., mechanical spaces are housed at the bases of the buildings on floors with ceilings at least 20 feet high. Raising the ceiling height doesn't count against the square footage that a developer is allotted, and allows them to create a pedestal on which to stack more high-floor apartments whose expansive views command higher prices.

"Developers are making a bet that the premium they will get by moving the units upward is going to outweigh the cost," said a New York developer who's not associated with the Madison Avenue project. "It's a simple bet—and it's probably a safe one."

For Fosun and JD Carlisle's building, the reason behind the large mechanical space may be tied to the next-door Chandler Hotel. According to Janes' letter, the proposed building is too close to the hotel to legally allow apartments, which require a certain amount of outside light and air. Rather than shrink or change the condo tower's shape to make enough room, the developers may have decided to simply raise the units above the hotel and avoid the problem altogether.

The Sky House condo association, which retained Janes and the law firm Marcus Rosenberg & Diamond, could not be reached for comment as to why it began scrutinizing Fosun and JD Carlisle's blueprints. But an advertisement on listings website StreetEasy indicates that units there boast "sensational views of the city." In April, a two-bedroom apartment at Sky House listed for $3.7 million went into contract.

Janes' objections have shut down other high-profile luxury condo developments recently. In May, the city stopped work on developer DDG's East 88th Street condo tower after the planner noted that a rear yard had been carved out of the building's footprint against city code so DDG could add more space at the top of its building.

F the neighbors. It's a rule that applies at all times, in all places.

City stops work on Manhattan luxury-apartment tower

Inspectors took issue with the size of an adjacent open space, but had no problem with the developers' plans to put the building's apartments on stilts

Quote:
The city stopped work on a proposed 760-foot-tall luxury-condominium building at East 30th Street and Madison Avenue last week—a small victory for residents of a neighboring condo tower who raised a number of concerns with the new development's design.

The project’s developers, Manhattan-based JD Carlisle and Shanghai-based investment firm Fosun Group, ran afoul of complex laws governing the size of a small outdoor space, an inspector from the city’s Department of Buildings found. In this case, the space is on the second floor and is called an outer court. According to the law, such a space needs to be at least 10 feet wide. The project is now on hold until the partnership meets with the city to remedy the issue, which could include changing the building’s design. Otherwise, the firms will have their permit revoked.

JD Carlisle referred comment to Fosun, whose spokesman did not respond to a request for comment by press time.

The city rejected several other complaints filed by residents of a nearby luxury tower, called Sky House Condominium. For instance, owners there also objected to JD Carlisle's and Fosun's plan to essentially put their building on stilts—a new tactic being used by luxury developers to raise their apartments higher in the air and provide buyers better views.

In this case, JD Carlisle and Fosun planned for several cavernous floors near the building’s base to house nonresidential components such as mechanical systems. By stretching the ceiling heights on these floors to an estimated 44 feet, the developers helped create a 155-foot pedestal on which to build the apartments. That height is just above the roof line of the Chandler Hotel next door.

A planner hired by the Sky House condo association said this so-called "structural void" was poor urban design that subtracted from the livelihood of the street. But the Department of Buildings said zoning laws do not regulate the height of ceilings for mechanical spaces, or the amount of mechanical space that can be stuck into an apartment tower such as this one. Thus it had no objection to this aspect of the tower's design.

The condo board may appeal the department’s ruling.

Great rendering, design, and height. Perfect for the area and just the right amount of presence.

Just for sake of making it easier to track, I think 15 East 30th Street should replace 126 Madison Avenue in the title. The cross street is the address most used by developers and in permits for the DOB.
