277 Fifth Avenue as of mid-January (CityRealty) 277 Fifth Avenue as of mid-January (CityRealty)
Pedestrians walking north along the lower extents of Fifth Avenue have probably noticed a new skyscraper coming into view —nearly encroaching on the sacred space long occupied by the Empire State Building. The under-construction tower is 277 Fifth Avenue, a lanky, 663-foot tall condominium being developed by The Victor Group in partnership with Lendlease. Upon completion later this year, the 55-floor, vertically-striped prism will be the tallest structure in NoMad. The tower reached its halfway point last August.
Said to imbue “a refined sensibility,” the understated design was shaped by Rafael Viñoly’ Architects, with Jeffrey Beers International handling the interiors. Its monolithic form and façade will only be interrupted by four double-height loggias found mostly along its upper reaches. Viñoly says the open-air galleries “are an interesting typology of open space and terracing that has not been seriously explored before.” The building's amenity spaces, also designed by Beers, span the third and fourth levels and include a library, an entertainment suite with a bar and private dining room, and a fitness club/spa opening onto a furnished terrace.

The column-free floorplates afforded by the tube-like structural system will hold 127 light-filled homes wrapped by floor-to-ceiling windows that lend views of Madison Square Park, numerous skyline icons, and glimpses of both rivers. Interiors will be finished in warm, natural materials, and its distinguishing perimeter columns provide ample wall space for displaying art.
The first condos came online in September 2017. Currently available are 828-square-foot one-bedrooms starting at $2 million, 1,343-square-foot two-bedrooms from $3 million and 1,784-square-foot three-bedrooms from $5.58 million. Open kitchens have Calacatta Saccheli polished marble slab center islands, countertops, and backsplash. Additionally, kitchens have a suite of Miele appliances and cabinets are finished in pale-oak with upper cabinets provided in two options. Master baths have full height San Nicola marble walls, heated Bianco Dolomiti marble flooring, walnut cabinets with Bianco Dolomiti marble slab countertops.

Revised drawings filed with the city show the tower's height was reduced from 721 feet tall to 663 feet — still eclipsing the neighborhood's current tallest, the 588-foot-tall Sky House. Renderings have not shown how the building will meet the ground and previous diagrams submitted to the city's Department of Buildings showed the tower would stand on a forest of stilts and terraces rocketing from a retail podium. Updated drawings show that has been done away with a more conventional design is planned. We did uncover that the two small buildings next door, whose transfer of development rights allowed for 277 Fifth’s lofty height, are being repositioned into a commercial retail structure.
