Construction Crane Assembled for 262 Fifth Avenue Supertall in NoMad, Manhattan
Construction is ramping up on 262 Fifth Avenue, a 1,000-foot residential supertall in NoMad, where the tower crane has just completed assembly. Designed by Meganom with SLCE Architects as the executive architect and developed by Boris Kuzinez of Five Points Development under the Five Points 262 Project LLC, the 54-story skyscraper will yield 41 condominium units. WSP is the structural and M.E.P. engineer and CM & Associates Construction Management is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the southwest corner of Fifth Avenue and West 29th Street.
Additional concrete has been poured for the tower’s core since our last update in late December, and our recent visit captured the assembly of the yellow tower crane on the corner plot. Work should begin to speed up now that construction has passed the thick concrete base, and the first habitable levels should soon begin formation.
Workers temporarily blocked off vehicular and pedestrian traffic by the corner of Fifth Avenue and West 29th Street as a team of telescopic cranes helped to assemble the sections of the jib. The tower and cab were already assembled.
A list of residential amenities has not been disclosed, though the renderings depict a pair of outdoor terraces. One is positioned nearly two thirds of the way up, with a second at the top of the supertall partially enclosed on the eastern and western sides by a tall rectangular outline.
YIMBY expects 262 Fifth Avenue to be completed in the latter half of 2024.
