The residential supertall boom in Manhattan has been focused on the core of Midtown, with One57, 432 Park, 217 West 57th Street, and 111 West 57th Street all rising in the blocks between Eighth and Park avenue, reports newyorkyimby.com.

Now, Kohn Pedersen Fox’s entry into a design contest for 151 East 60th Street, show a building rising on the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 60th Street, stretching Midtown’s new skyscraper crown a few blocks northeast of its current local maxima.

The entry was for an architecture competition and no winner has been publicly announced. The site’s developer, Kuafu Properties, closed on the assemblage for $300 million in October 2015.

The site could become the most prominent high-rise on the Upper East Side. The current development cycle will result in several new towers in the vicinity, with the tallest already under construction located at 520 Park Avenue, on the corner of 60th Street, one block to the west. 118 East 59th Street and 200 East 59th Street are also in the works.
