Smile NEW YORK | 237 East 34th Street | 210 FT | 23 FLOORS

237 East 34th Street




Quote:
A tipster sent along the first rendering for 237 East 34th Street, which is about to give rise to a predominantly residential building. The site’s former occupant was a lecture hall used by Yeshiva University, and it will be demolished and enlarged to make way for the new structure; Alex Forkosh is the developer, and C3D Architecture is designing the new tower.
237 East 34th Street will stand 23 stories and 210 feet to its roof, and includes 6,282 square feet of ground-floor retail. Apartments are interspersed with a ‘community facility’ on the next three floors, and the latter component will comprise 7,002 square feet; the residential portion will total 84,256 square feet, which will be split between 108 units. Zoning diagrams and permits – which were approved last December — have additional details.

While 34th Street is a major thoroughfare, the neighborhood surrounding 237 East 34th Street remains relatively undeveloped — though the vicinity is definitely more populated than the Far West Side, at the other end of the street. The neighborhood is at the crossroads of Midtown, Murray Hill, and Kips Bay, which results in an awkward urban fabric; a comprehensive re-zoning to coincide with the eventual extension and opening of the 2nd Avenue subway would be wise.

In the meantime, 237 East 34th Street will add a relatively sizable amount of density, and the facade will be flush with the sidewalk, presenting an opportunity to enhance urbanity. Upper levels are characterized by small and gradual setbacks, resulting in staggered balconies; the rest of the tower is simple and glassy.

Sticking to the script in Kips Bay building: architecture review

Quote:
Renderings were recently published for 237 East 34th Street, a new residential development in the weary, dreary heart of the Kips Bay and Murray Hill sections of Manhattan. This neighborhood has had little distinguished building stock to date and has benefitted all too little from the surge in construction that nearly every other part of the city has seen in recent years. But these renderings look promising enough to inspire hope that things might actually be getting better on the Far East Side.

The new building, designed by C3D Architecture, will rise over a site acquired from Yeshiva University in 2012 for $15.5 million. Originally, the plan was to house a dormitory on the plot, replacing the undistinguished Yeshiva lecture hall that stands there now. Indeed, the building’s small, hard windows punctuate the brick façade in a way that recalls some of the older jails on Rikers Island.

The developer of 237 East 34th is Alex Forkosh. The new structure will rise 23 stories and 210 feet, with 6,282 square feet of street-level retail. The residential portion of the building, at 84,256 square feet, which contain 108 units, is slated for completion in 2016.

C3D Architecture, whose projects include The Gotham Hotel on East 46th Street, as well as 949 Park Avenue, has long cultivated a gentler form of the deconstructivist style, whose syncopations and asymmetries seem ultimately to reaffirm, rather than to challenge, the standard modernist grid into which they are set.

This appears to be the case at 237 East 34th Street. Within the context of a modular, curtain-walled tower, the architects introduce, starting at the sixth floor, balconies along the western edge of the building, which shift to a diagonal configuration toward the top, where they are suddenly complemented by balconies to the east. Balconies also appear unexpectedly at the center of the structure, from the 6th to the 12th floors.


Though the design is hardly radical, and though this firm’s projects have suffered in the past from a suggestion of value engineering, there is reason to hope that this new project will add a touch of grace to an often overlooked part of the city.

Residential Apartments
Status: Under Construction

This development is an enlargement of existing 4-story buildings into a 22-story, 100,000 sq. ft. structure. The 2nd through 22nd floors will consist of 4-6 residential apartments per floor for a total of 107 units. The building will utilize a cast concrete super-structure with glass curtain wall and metal panel cladding material.

A new 107-unit rental tower at 237 East 34th Street in Murray Hill has finally shed its construction netting revealing a handsome glass facade animated by lines of balconies and a diagonal setback. The 23-story building stands near the northwest corner of East 34th Street and First Avenue near the United Nations and the east side's ""Hospital Row."" When finished early next year, the building will span 84,256 square feet of residential space, along with 6,282 square feet of retail along its ground floor.
