Smile NEW YORK | 222 East 40th St | 395 FT | 37 FLOORS

New York YIMBY:

Permits Filed: 225 East 39th Street
BY: NIKOLAI FEDAK ON MAY 5TH 2014 AT 3:30 PM


225 East 39th Street -- image via Google Maps

Quote:
The first permits are up for a new residential building at 225 East 39th Street — which also has an address at 222 East 40th Street — in Midtown East; Fisher Brothers is developing the site, and the architect of record is Handel. Lois Weiss at the New York Post reported on the acquisition and potential development last July.

225 East 39th Street will measure 374,490 square feet, and the tower will stand 37 stories and 395 feet to its roof; the building will have 372 residences. The Post originally stated the high-rise would measure approximately 250,000 square feet; evidently there has been an increase in the development’s scope, and it will verge on the larger side for new residential construction in Manhattan, indicating apartments are more likely than condominiums.

The site is currently occupied by a 6-story Hertz parking garage, and the transformation to apartments will be beneficial to the neighborhood, which is close to several transit options, and within walking distance of the corridor that will be re-zoned as part of Midtown East’s redevelopment. Ensuring that the future office workers have living options within a short distance will help minimize the expanded business district’s strain on existing transportation options, while also enhancing the neighborhood’s pedestrian vibrancy — though no retail component is included in the permits.

No completion date for the site has been announced, though demolition permits for the existing garage were filed in January, indicating construction is imminent.

A recent article on this development with an indication of the completion year, as of June 16th:
---------------------------------------

Fisher brothers’ Murray Hill tower to include affordable units

Quote:
A former Hertz Garage on East 40th Street will make way for a 36-story residential building, which will include 75 affordable units.
Fisher Brothers, who is developing the site, will demolish the six-story garage currently located on the site. In total, the new building at 222 East 40th Street, between Second and Third avenues, will have 373 rental units available.

The development will measure roughly 375,000 square feet and the tower will stand 395 feet tall, according to DNAinfo.

The affordable units will be geared toward New Yorkers who earn about 60 percent of the median income in the area, according to DNAinfo. That works out to about $35,280 annually for a single applicant. A family of four must have an annual income of no more than $50,340 to qualify for a unit.
It’s still unclear what the building will look like or how the market-rate units will be priced.

The new tower is expected to be completed and open in 2017 and will include a fitness center, pool, yoga studio, lounges and 72 parking spaces.

I read the recent entry on yimby and basically I'm a bit upset that the City of New York has to bend over the state for almost everything? NYC can't deal with its own zoning/FAR limits? Can someone explain.

Also the same happened with congestion pricing which would give the 2nd Avenue subway some $$. It never passed because of Albany. The MTA literally has to fight for every single penny while the state is spending big bucks on a bridge on anywhere Upstate, NY.

This part of the Midtown East desperately needs a new subway line.

You realize Midtown East is getting a new subway line, right?

When? Phase 1 is underway and will only go to 96th street. Phase 2 and 3 are decades away honestly.

No, this building is right next to Phase 2, which begins 2018.

Revealed: 222 East 40th Street




Quote:
As first reported in early May, DOB permits indicate 222 East 40th Street will measure 374,490 square feet, split between 372 apartments. The 37-story structure will stand 395 feet tall, and spans through the block, with another address at 235 East 39th Street.

The building’s design appears quite basic, though the current images may be subject to further change; 222 East 40th Street will have a standard glass facade divided between rectangles of various sizes, though the southwest corner will be almond-shaped, presenting a contrast to the otherwise boxy envelope. A parapet extends above the general squareness, covering the rooftop mechanicals.

New Renderings of Fisher Brothers’ Curvy Murray Hill Rental at 225 East 39th Street

New Renderings of Fisher Brothers’ Curvy Murray Hill Rental at 225 East 39th Street

It’s always a pleasure when a hulking above-ground parking garage bites the dust; this is not Miami after all, take the subway! And thanks to the legendary real estate firm Fisher Brothers, a soul-crushing 705-car parking garage at 225 East 39th Street was razed last year in preparation for an elegant 36-story rental tower. New renderings posted on the development firm’s website illustrate how the tower may bring a bit of pizzazz to a rather un-glamorous section of Murray Hill. With completion scheduled for spring 2017, groundwork is well underway with sections of the foundation slab poured and steel re-bar projecting skyward.

Fisher Brothers began construction in March of 2015 for a 37-story, 372 unit rental building. Upon completion, 225 E. 39th Street will be a highly coveted luxury rental building without peer in the Murray Hill neighborhood. Handel Architects will serve as the project architect and the Rockwell Group will design the interiors. Completion for the project is scheduled for spring, 2017.

It's quite sexy for a rental building

I just hope they omit those green staggered strips on the curtainwall.

Cool, Blue & Curving: 225 East 39th Street Nears Completion + Launches Housing Lotter

Cool, Blue & Curving: 225 East 39th Street Nears Completion + Launches Housing Lottery
https://www.cityrealty.com/nyc/marke...g-lottery/5113

Quote:
225 East 39th Street is closing in on completion following last Friday's kick-off of its housing lottery. From now until September 27th, New Yorkers earning 60% or less of the area median income are welcome to apply for the lottery in the new, 36-story, curving glass tower. Located in Murray Hill on the cusp of Midtown East, the impressive tower topped out in May at a height of 295 feet and is rapidly nearing completion. Developed by Fisher Brothers and designed by Handel Architects, 225 East 29th Street features a reflective curtain wall, transparent base, and shallow plaza for a truly unique stature in the heart of Manhattan.
