Vision: 222 East 44th Street, Three Different Designs by Kaufman for Midtown East Residential Tower

Back in January, Crain’s New York featured an article on “the baron of bland buildings,” aka Gene Kaufman. In the piece, the architect can be seen next to two different building models, one of which YIMBY has now located (though it will remain unbuilt). The plan was one of three submitted by Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman for BLDG Management’s 222 East 44th Street (Midtown), the subject of a design competition. Located between Second and Third Avenues, the plans illuminate the site’s 300,000 square foot potential. All three proposals clock-in with around 400 units, though their size varies from 372,630 square feet to 526,098 gross square feet. Each version also includes approximately 200 parking spaces.
