Carter's View

The Morris Adjmi-designed condo rising at 30 East 31st Street in NoMad is framing the last of its 42 floors. While the project will top out at a modest 479 feet tall, we expect it to be a refreshing addition to the skyline due to its Gothic-inspired motifs and celebratory top that complements the city’s most beloved skyscrapers.

Recently, our in-house architecture critic, Carter Horsley reviewed 30 E 31 where he first wistfully looks back at the “very handsome and eclectic parish house” that was lost to make way for the tower. He then praises Adjmi’s “rather stunning, blooming silver tower” to come. Read his full review here.
30 E 31 will offer 42 one- and two-bedroom residences, most of which are floor-throughs. The tower is being developed by Ekstein Development Group and will be their first high-rise development in Manhattan. The tower soars from a midblock site less than 50 feet wide and piles on air rights from the adjacent Madison Avenue Baptist Church. The tower floors are just 35-feet wide, less than the 60-foot width of the most slender tower in the world, the forthcoming 111 West 57th Street.
Like that aforementioned supertower, the cozy floorplates are ideal for single-floor apartments. A central core will divide the living areas from the private bedrooms. The great rooms face north and will have postcard views of the Midtown skyline with the elegant profiles of the Chrysler, Mercantile, and Lefcourt Colonial buildings in view. An oversized picture window cut into the western sheer wall will frame a view of the Empire State Building. Southern exposures have the New York Life front and center and glimpses of both rivers, the downtown skyline and Brooklyn in their panorama.

All of the building’s open-plan units include wide-plank white oak floors; bathrooms with Calacatta Prima and Bleu de Savoie marble; and kitchens with walnut cabinets, quartzite counters, and Wolf, Sub-Zero and Bosch appliances. The building has a concierge, a full-time doorman, a private garden, lounge, bicycle room, and a fitness center.
There are 13 one-bedroom apartments on floors 2 through 8, starting at 866 square feet and $1.65 million. Apartment 3A is a 968-square-foot, one-bedroom unit with an entry foyer that leads past a 10-foot-wide kitchen with a breakfast bar to a 19-foot-wide living/dining room.

From the 10th floor up to the 38th, there are single 1,677-square-foot two-bedroom homes priced from $3.6 million. Residence #27 has a large private corridor next to the elevators that leads to a 25-foot-long living/dining room and a 14-foot-wide open kitchen with a breakfast bar.

At the top, behind the “interlacing piers,” there is a 3,354-square-foot three-bedroom duplex penthouse available for $12 million. Morris Adjmi notes there will be unique triangular windows that recall the iconic crown of the Chrysler Building. This unit has a 31-foot-long living room with a 9-foot-wide wet bar that leads to a 10-foot-wide pantry next to a 13-foot-wide open kitchen with a breakfast bar and a 22-foot-long dining room on the lower level with bedrooms on the upper level.
