New renderings of 249 East 62nd Street reveal a project where George Jetson would feel right at home.

The Upper East Side building, which is being designed by Rafael Viñoly and developed by Third Palm Capital and Real Estate Inverlad Development, will stand 32 stories and 510 feet tall, using a podium to increase the height of its upper residential levels, according to YIMBY.

A townhouse and retail space will be housed in the base of the building, with apartments on top through the 12th floor. Mechanical space will occupy floors 13 through 16, and residential space will then resume from floors 17 through 29, followed by three more mechanical floors on top.

The building’s total construction area will span more than 150,000 square feet, with 83 residential units across 98,526 square feet and 2,588 square feet of retail.

The hollow spaces below the residential units do not count as part of the maximum square footage developers are allowed to build, which has sparked resistance to the building from local preservation groups, Crain’s reported.

Third Palm and Inverlad bought the site in 2016 for $64.3 million.

It remains unclear when the project will be finished, but construction permits were approved late last year. [YIMBY] and [Crain’s]Eddie Small
