277 fifth is being developed by victor group and lendlease, with shokai serving as the project’s preferred equity investor. the high-rise features four loggias — sheltered, double-height, open-air spaces for leisure and entertaining. meanwhile, three penthouses — situated on the tower’s uppermost floors — each contain four-bedrooms with ceiling heights in excess of 13 feet and expansive living, dining, and family rooms. jeffrey beers designed the interior layouts with wide plank american white oak flooring and custom appliances throughout.
