Façade Installation Begins for 1050 Sixth Avenue in New York

28 March 2018 | New York City, United States

The Gene Kaufman-designed-1050 Sixth Avenue, dubbed ML House, is making significant progress in the heart of Midtown Manhattan. In a break from the architect’s norm, the building will not be hospitality-minded; rather, it will yield 24 floors of apartments, as well as ground-floor retail space. The site is half a block away from Bryant Park, with access to several subway lines just a few blocks in any direction. Orin Wilf’s Garden Homes and Skyline is responsible for the development.

The building has topped-out, with three floors of façade panels visibly installed. The building is being clad with glass fiber reinforced concrete, colored with a warm tan tone.

The 261-foot-tall (79.6-meter-tall) structure will yield 54,360 square feet (5,236 square meters) of space, with 51,660 square feet (4,799 square meters) dedicated to residential use, and 2,700 square feet (250 square meters) for ground-floor commercial-retail use. The tower will house 62 apartments, averaging over 800 square feet (74 square meters) apiece, indicating rentals.

Residents will have access to a fitness center, lounge, and second-floor terrace. Some units will include private outdoor terraces. Rooms vary in size from studio to three-bedrooms.

Citi Habitats New Developments is responsible for marketing, which is expected to commence this summer. Completion is expected by the end of 2018.
