Exterior work is progressing at 249 East 62nd Street, a 28-story residential tower on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Designed by INC Architecture & Design with SLCE Architects as executive architect and developed by Zeckendorf Development, the 347-foot-tall structure will produce 66 condominium units with two to four homes per level. CM & Associates is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Second Avenue and East 62nd Street.
At the time of our last update in August, the reinforced concrete superstructure had recently crested and was completely exposed. Since then, workers have been steadily enclosing the building with interior cinderblock walls and a grid of large windows. The lower levels below the main setback are now covered with scaffolding and construction netting. This section is enclosed in sealing panels with clips in place to hold the final facade.
Residential facilities will include a fitness center, sauna and steam room, as well as an on-site superintendent. More will likely be released as the project nears completion. The closest subways to the site are the F and Q trains at the Lexington Avenue-63rd Street station to the west, and the N, R, W, 4, 5, and 6 trains at the Lexington Avenue-59th Street station.
249 East 62nd Street is expected to be completed in the second half of 2023.
