Leasing has begun at Midtown East‘s newest rental building at 235 East 44th Street. Developed by CMSJ Development, the 70,000-square-foot, ground-up building contains 67 units across its 19 floors. For current availabilities, monthly prices start at $3,300 for studios, $4,500 for one-bedrooms, $6,105 for two-bedrooms, and $8,100 for three-bedrooms.
Designed by Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects, it’s is situated mid-block along a dense urban canyon just two blocks east of Grand Central Terminal and one block west of the United Nations. Its street-facing exterior is finished in GKV’s trademark aesthetic of exposed cast-in-place concrete, reminiscent of the Brutalist movement of the 1950s and ’60s. The tower’s glass walls and concrete floor slabs undulate in opposite directions, softening the raw materials and adding fluidity to the building’s form.
