65-Story Condo Tower in East 37th

Information

8 East 37th Street
A tall, slender condo tower designed by Perkins+Will is headed for East 37th Street. The design for the tower, which is bisected by five open-air gardens, debuted in Cannes, France as part of MIPIM, "an international property event," where it won an award. The developer is the Turkish firm Nef, which is part of Timur Holding, and the building is set to rise 65 stories and more than 700 feet. This is Nef's first project in New York. The plans for the building have been so under wraps that even the press team for Perkins+Will did not know the address of the site (they are getting back to us). A variety of Google searches provided nothing in the way of past coverage, so this project is quite the surprise.
A press release touting the award included two renderings, plus a detailed description of the design. "Emerging from its shimmering, angled curtain wall, the building is organized with five clusters of shared amenity and park spaces for residents to enjoy, at specific intervals along the tower's rise. This is a marked departure from other condominium towers, which use small exterior balconies or, in some cases, cluster all shared spaces in one area."
The press release really hates on the "unusable balconies" found in other New York towers:

Each community space features a variety of amenities, from event rooms, a chef's table, private yoga studio, art room, exterior Jacuzzi, fitness room, terraced gardens, an outdoor cinema, observatory, and at the tower's top level, an infinity pool and roof terrace garden. Wind speeds, which can be high in upper floors of tall buildings are controlled by architectural screening and outdoor space configuration.

A Curbed commenter thinks the address may be 8 East 37th Street, and Google Streetview shows that property is currently vacant, but other sources say that the address is actually 12 East 37th Street. Property records show that the Chetrit Group bought 8 East 37th Street in 2004, and it has not changed hands since, while 12 East 37th Street sold in 2013 to an LLC. (via Curbed)
