    Default 510 Madison Avenue @ East 53rd Street - by Moed De Armas & Shannon

    Not sure if there is a thread for this, couldnt find one.

    This project is a new 30-story, 350,000 square foot office building on Madison Avenue and 53rd Street. Macklowe is the owner/developer. CM is in place and construction starts in Feb

    They tore down some very attractive buildings for this.......but, of course, that its midtown, none were landmarked.

    I hope they design and build something very worthy of this site.

    Who have they hired as an architect?

    Remember, Harry you are not a broker anymore - pay the extra bucks for a real architect with some talent and vision.

    Didn't they design Metropolitan Tower? I think that is one of the best new buildings in NYC.

    They were the consulting architect for 731. Ofcourse Pelli designed the Bloomberg Tower. I hope its a similar case here with SLCE acting as contributing architects and some other architect acting as design architects.

    There's an existing thread on this project here:

    http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/sh...st+53rd+street

    While I agree Metropolitan Tower is fantastic, and without a doubt SLCE's best work, it's nowhere near new. It's almost 20 years old.

    I agree with Stern: I think SLCE will be the architect of record for this one, and hopefully we get a better team to actually design the building.

    I consider any building from 1980 onward newish.

    P.S.: Is this building really only 350,000 s.f.? It's a pretty big site for a relatively small building.

    If it's only 30 stories, it's doesn't seem that small. Remember, this site doesn't go through-block to 52nd, only about halfway when it meets up with the Omni Berkshire Hotel.

    Here are some (relatively) recent pictures. Sorry for the bad quality:











    Anyone know how much square feet 505 Fifth has? I have a feeling this building will be pretty similar.

    ^ According to this... http://www.wirednewyork.com/real_estate/505fifth/

    It has 275,000 square feet and is 27 floors. So I imagine this one will be much taller.

    Umm... I thought that this is going to be a new 30-story, 350,000 square foot tower. According to the first post that kliq6 posted.

    But then again the lot seems bigger. So I guess it could be the same size as 505 Fifth avenue.
