NoMad is a neighborhood that is at once historic and cutting-edge, where brand-new high-rises rise rapidly between pre-war buildings. Morris Adjmi Architects’ design for 30E31, the slender skyscraper at 30 East 31st Street, embodies NoMad’s duality as it channels the spirit of Gothic architecture in a daring modern direction. CityRealty’s recent site visit reveals that the exterior is nearly complete, on track for a likely completion around the start of 2020. The convenient location, inspired design, bespoke finishes, and ten-year tax abatement yielded a rapid sell-out; currently, only five unit layouts (one one- and four two-bedroom) remain on the market, ranging from $1.7 million to $4.15 million.

30E31, developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Realty, rises between Park and Madison Avenues on a densely-built block with little space for new development. The 479-foot-tall tower measures just slightly wider than the average townhouse, with 54-by-36-foot floorplates that achieve an astounding slenderness ratio of 1:13. Even the floors at famously-svelte 111 West 57th Street are comparatively roomy, spanning an average of 80 by 59 feet. However, the architects cleverly turned the apparent constraint to their advantage, in terms of aesthetics as well as function.

 

The 42-story tower holds just 42 units, where most condo owners will have the entire floor to themselves, with private and near-private elevator landings create a penthouse experience on every level. The low unit count, comparable with that of an average six-story pre-war building in the outer boroughs, furthers a close-knit, communal feel, reinforced with amenities such as a cozy attended lobby, a demure lounge with a fireplace and snug wall alcoves, and a sunlit fitness center that overlooks a compact yet lush rear garden.

The structural engineers bundled load-bearing walls at the core and along obstruction-prone, windowless side walls, maximizing floor-to-ceiling windows on unobstructed south- and north-facing elevations that open onto Downtown and Midtown panoramas. The townhomes-in-the-sky are made cozy with a finish palette that includes wide-plank oak flooring, Perla Venata quartzite counters and backsplashes in kitchens, and Statuary marble slab walls and vanities in bathrooms.

 

The slender form also lent inspiration to the architects' stylistic choice. Medieval Europe’s spindly Gothic cathedrals rose through thin, “skeletal” construction that both expressed a heavenly uplift and minimized wall girth, allowing for giant stained-glass windows. New York’s turn-of-the-century architects applied Gothic verticality to newfangled “skyscrapers,” most famously to the fantastical Woolworth Building. 30E31 further evolves the time-tested, vertical-minded style with slender mullions that ascend to Gothic pointed arches at the setback, then leap skyward to the pinnacle, higher than all but the loftiest cathedrals, where they bend into a modern diagrid more akin to Midtown’s Hearst Tower than Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral.

 

Despite its prominence, the building is overshadowed by even taller neighbors, such as the 804-foot-high Madison House, which nears completion a block away, and the fabled spire of the Empire State Building, which looms 1,454 feet tall just two blocks further. However, 30E31’s gentle yet bold blend of Gothic and modern motifs manifests in a dramatic elan that makes a fine addition to the NoMad skyline.
