A residential development is coming to Lexington Avenue between 33rd and 34th streets.

New renderings of the project, designed by C3D Architecture, were released by New York Yimby. NY Lions Group’s Albert Shirian is the developer of the residential building. The structure will be 14 stories tall and will have 40 units. Other new nearby residential developments include 160 Madison Avenue and 172 Madison Avenue, both located two blocks west. Renderings show a glassy exterior with big windows.

Two low-rise buildings at 229 Lexington Avenue will be demolished to make way for the residential project.

While a permit to demolish the existing structures has been filed, the developer didn’t yet apply to construct the new building, according to the website. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses
