31-Story Apartment Tower Rising at 325 Lexington Avenue





December 19, 2012

A tipster sends word that the once-stalled construction site at 325 Lexington Avenue is moving full steam ahead. Last we heard anything about the site was way back in 2006, when rumors were circulating that a 25-story tower was being built there. According to DOB records, this building started construction, but then stalled in 2008. Permits were renewed in July 2011, and work has been moving steadily forward since then, with the latest permits being issued just yesterday. Here's what we know from filings with the DOB: it will be 31 stories, plus a celler, the ground floor will have a restaurant/bar, and the residential portion will have 103 apartments (two full-floor penthouses), a club room, and a fitness center.

A quick Google search for "325 Lexington" turns up a design for a building at the site created by Studio Dror. We're not sure if this is actually what the building will look like (we've reached out to Dror, but have yet to hear back), but if it is, then it's a pretty mindboggling tower.

This one is about 400 ft.

There are a bunch of development sites along this stretch of Lexington, so hopefully we'll get some more towers nearby.

Crazy this one popped up out of nowhere! If the renderings are correct, it should be quite nice.

Hot. We are getting a lot of seriously avant garde architecture here (finally).

Update by EastMilliinocket @ WNY. Unfortunately, it looks like they've abandoned the stacked boxes design.

Those construction pics seem to have little to do with the rendering posted above. Its too bad. And that gigantic blank wall is just depressing.

I was disappointed that they abandoned the shifting boxes and the huge blank wall, but the cladding on this building actually looks promising:

From dramaticlly daring to totally underwhelming, oh well! there is plenty of other developments to be excited about these days in NYC.

Looks like they borrowed some cladding from One Madison.

A 400-foot residential tower right around the corner, on Madison, was permitted today, so this will have company.

This is exactly what a skyscraper should be! It's underwhelming, boxy, and entirely derivative.
