Lloyd Goldman’s BLDG files to build Midtown East resi tower
Planned 41-story tower will include 429 apartments, 87 of which will be affordable
Lloyd Goldman’s BLDG Management is looking to bring a new, 449-foot-tall, 41-story residential tower to Midtown East, according to an application filed today with the city’s Department of Buildings.
The site at 212-214 East 44th Street currently houses a 10-story parking garage. Goldman paid $32 million for it in April.
The new building — Which Will Have The Address 222 East 44th Street — will span roughly 300,000 square feet, according to the permit application. It will have 429 residential units spread out over 39 floors, and 87 of the units will be affordable, according to a representative from SLCE Architects. Handel Architects is designing the building and SLCE is the executive architect.
Planned amenities include a swimming pool and a basketball court on the second floor. The first floor will include a roughly 2,300-square-foot retail space, according to the permit application.
BLDG is also developing a $35.3 million project on a site of a former gas station in the East Village. In October, it sold two properties in Midtown East and in March of 2014, it sold a Long Island City site for $60 million.
