Leonard Wilf of Skyline Developers revealed plans for a 24-story Midtown residential project in permits filed with the city.

The structure, at 1050 Sixth Avenue between 39th and 40th Streets just south of Bryant Park, will be designed by Gene Kaufman and include 61 units spanning 56,784 square feet, for an average of under 1,000 square feet per residence. A triplex penthouse will occupy floors 22 through 24, according to New York YIMBY.

Skyline Developers is the New York division of Short Hills, N.J.-based Garden Homes Development.

Across the street at 1045 Sixth Avenue (also known as 7 Bryant Park), a new 28-story office building developed by Hines is nearing completion.

Hotel development has also been booming in the neighborhood, with Morris Moinian’s Fortuna Realty Group planning a 37-story luxury hotel at 1150 Sixth Avenue, and Ziel Feldman’s HFZ Capital Group starting construction soon on a hotel and residential combo at 20 West 40th Street on Bryant Park.
