The garage at 222 East 44th Street, where Lloyd Goldman’s BLDG Management is building a new residential tower, is already demolished. And now, we can finally see what Handel Architects has designed to replace it.
The 43-story, mid-block rental tower will rise 556 feet and include 429 units — 87 of those will be affordable, according to 6sqft.
Part of Handel Architects’ design includes “a unique massing where its elevations are torqued away from the street wall,” giving residents access to additional light and air, 6sqft explains.
Amenities at the development include concierge and valet services, on-site parking for 230 cars, a penthouse roof deck and lounge, sundeck, indoor swimming pool, resident lounge, golf simulator, children’s playroom, fitness center with indoor basketball court and storage.
Back in July, The Real Deal reported that BLDG Management secured $251 million in financing for the project.
