Façade Installation Begins On 200 East 20th Street In Gramercy Park, Manhattan
Curtain wall installation has begun on 200 East 20th Street, a 19-story residential building in Gramercy Park, Manhattan. Designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Glacier Global Partners, the 210-foot-tall structure will yield 82,800 square feet with 52 condominium units spread across 65,500 square feet and 2,730 square feet of retail space. CM & Associates Construction Management is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the southeast corner of East 20th Street and Third Avenue.
Construction had just reached street level at the time of our last update in January. Since then, the reinforced concrete superstructure was built up to its pinnacle and work has now shifted to the construction of the façade, which is composed of bronze paneling framing floor-to-ceiling glass. The northwest corner features a distinctive rounded corner, over which the first sections of curved windows are now being hung. This flowing form is echoed in the design of the cascading setbacks on the northern and western sides of the upper levels.
Metal anchor clips are in place on the edges of almost every floor plate in preparation for the installation of the rest of the façade.
The main rendering shows the entire structure clad in this combination of glass and bronze paneling. The lower 14 floors rise with a uniform massing, above which the building sets back with a series of stepped and pocketed terraces. The top three levels are planned to house one unit per floor, and the 19th floor penthouse will come with an expansive private outdoor space. Residential amenities include shared outdoor terraces on the second floor and rooftop, a fitness center, a pet spa, a children’s room, and bicycle storage.
The nearest subway from 200 East 20th Street is the 6 train at the 23 Street station along Park Avenue South to the northwest. Also nearby are the 4, 5, 6, L, N, Q, R, and W trains at the 14 Street-Union Square station.
200 East 20th Street has a target completion date of June 11, 2024 listed on the construction board.
