Real Estate Inverlad’s in-the-works residential project at 249 East 62nd Street is now one less ZD1 diagram away from being a reality. CityRealty reports that the customary diagram is now on file, giving us a look at the tower’s proposed bulk–and the Department of Buildings has found the project, even with a few clever tricks up its sleeve, compliant with the city’s zoning laws. The diagram shows that the skyscraper will elevate a number of the units within by using  an octagonally-shaped core, periscope style, to peer out over their Upper East Side neighbors towards Central Park and the East River.

The Viñoly design will join a slew of new Upper East Side constructions prompted by the opening of the Second Avenue Subway line, which is located just a few minutes walk away.
