This project has now started on site with demolition underway. This is the first super-tall tower in Nomad, a 1,001-foot-tall luxury residential building.

Developer Boris Kuzinez’s Five Points Development has been assembling a development parcel on New York City’s Fifth Avenue, in the Nomad neighborhood near Madison Square Park, for some time.

262 Fifth Avenue Tower New York City

The skyscraper is designed by Meganom, the Moscow-based avant-garde architecture firm led by Yury Grigoyan and co-founder Ilya Kuleshov, with Elena Uglovskaya and Artem Staborovsky.m The building will be this architecture firm’s first project in the U.S.

The form of the skyscraper is shaped by a unique structural system that separates the building’s functioning core (elevators, mechanical systems, etc.) from its living spaces. This creates expansive, unobstructed, column-free and customizable full-floor residences.

There are a few ‘signature’ elements on the outside: The eastern facade will be aluminum and glass, with perforated oversized “porthole” shaped windows. At the top, a metal frame will shelter an arched observation deck for residents. On the north and south, three 15-foot wide floor-to-ceiling window walls will have uninhibited panoramic views of the city and beyond.

The modern tower aims to integrate the current 12-story limestone building at 260 Fifth Avenue with a new tower rising on the adjacent 262 Fifth Avenue site.

New York-based SLCE is the architect of record for 262 Fifth Avenue, and leading skyscraper structural engineers WSP USA is providing infrastructure-engineering services.
