222-East-44th-Street-02 Looking up at the toppedout structure of 222 East 44th Street; CityRealty
Only in New York can a skyscraper rise with barely anyone noticing. In Midtown East, equidistant from Grand Central Terminal and the United Nations, Lloyd Goldman has topped off construction on 222 East 44th Street. The project is a 41-story rental tower with 429 apartments, of which 87 of them will be for residents earning 60% or less than the area median income.
An American flag pitched on the structure’s uppermost beam marks the topping out milestone. The site previously held a parking garage that Goldman’s BLDG Management purchased for $32 million in 2014. Over the course of the past year, the building has rocketed skyward, but even at 41-stories, the tower hardly makes a dent in the Midtown skyline. The building’s unique chamfered floorplate was conceived by Handel Architects. The tower rises mostly freestanding from a dense and hemmed-in site between Second and Third avenues. Two of the building’s elevations are angled 45 degrees away from the city grid, therefore providing more light and air to the bulk of its apartments.
222-e-44th-Street-02 Construction progress as of early May 2017; CityRealty
Like many of the new rental buildings opening in the city, 222 East 44th will be loaded with amenities. The plethora of activity spaces will include a fitness center, swimming pool, basketball court and a golf simulator. Passive spaces include a resident lounge, screening room and a sundeck with barbecue area. There will also be concierge and valet services and a large parking garage. Judging by the pace of progress, leasing will likely begin late this year or early 2018. Follow the progress of this development on our building page.
