in march 2018, the developers behind ‘277 fifth,’ rafael viñoly’s latest new york tower, announced that the project had topped out at a height of 663 feet (202 meters). located in manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood, the 55-story structure will contain 130 luxury condominiums that offer sweeping views across the city via floor-to-ceiling windows. ‘we wanted to make a building that is timeless and that contributes to the ongoing transformation of fifth avenue — a unique and amazing promenade in the heart of new york city,’ explains viñoly, who discusses the project further in a new video at the top of this page.
