It’s been a good year for Rafael Viñoly, with three exciting residential projects climbing into the Manhattan skyline all at once. Now getting glassed (and stoned) is 277 Fifth Avenue, their slender Midtown follow-up to 432 Park Avenue.

The condo venture entails 130 high-end residences assembled inside a limber 55-floor tower. Set to top out at 721 feet, its height could be considered modest for, say, “Billionaires’ Row,” but at East 30th Street, the building will dominate views up Fifth Avenue and give residents sweeping vistas across the island. The tower will in fact become the tallest residential building on Fifth Avenue, usurping the title from fallen champion Trump Tower.

For the facade, Vinoly specified a pinstriped affair punctuated by several open garden clerestories. There have been no details released on the units or their prices but promise to be high with the few currently available condos in NoMad priced at a median of $2.1 million or ($1,764 / ft²) per our listings.

The project was incubated by the Victor Group who later partnered with Lendlease. In May, a registration site launched defining 277 Fifth Avenue as the intersection of uptown sophistication and downtown style. This NoMad section of the avenue has quickly become a sought-after residential address. With building sites for new condos along Fifth’s already-established residential areas along Central Park and Greenwich Village hard to come by, developers have homed in on this underbuilt (according to zoning) stretch between the Empire State Building and Madison Square Park.
In recent years, new condos to come online include the Grand Madison, 212 Fifth Avenue, 241 Fifth Avenue and 325 Fifth Avenue. Now, a new crop of even taller towers, such as 262 Fifth, 316 Fifth, and 3 West 29th, are in the works.
