In Manhattan’s Midtown East, the construction of Sutton Tower, an 80-story residential building, has been completed. Located in the Sutton Place neighborhood, the tower offers 120 for-sale residences, with the first move-ins scheduled for this summer.

The project was designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen and developed by Gamma Real Estate and JVP Management. Lendlease, the general contractor, started construction in 2018.

Lendlease constructed the building on a 6,000-sf site within a dense neighborhood. The project team used a 10-foot cantilever over the adjacent buildings on each side, starting at the sixth floor. During construction, the team built out steel decking beneath the cantilevers to access their undersides.

The project team also had to carefully coordinate deliveries to minimize disruption to the neighbors on three sides. During construction, the building’s ground-floor lobby functioned as a loading/unloading area for trucks. After the vertical construction was completed, the lobby interior was then finished.

Each of the 850-foot tower’s luxury condominiums is located on a corner. The residences feature wide-plank solid oak floors; Italian-crafted kitchens with matte lacquer cabinetry, honed slabs of Statuarietto marble, and Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances; and primary bathrooms with marble slab accent walls. The building’s limestone-clad façade leads to geometric detailing for the top mechanical floors.

Sutton Tower’s amenities cover more than 22,000 sf and include a double-height atrium, library, swimming pool, fitness center, spa suites, sports simulator room, screening room, private dining room, children’s room with an interactive mural, and a 1,300-sf sculpture garden. Because of the building’s smaller footprint, the amenities are spread across multiple floors.

Owner/developer: Gamma Real Estate and JVP Management – Sutton 58 Holding Company
Design architect: Thomas Jull-Hansen
Architect of record: Stephen B. Jacobs Group
MEP engineer: Cosentini Associates
