New 14-Story Apartment Building Coming to Murray Hill

A mixed-use, residential and commercial building being developed by NY Lions Group will soon begin to rise on the east side of Lexington Avenue, between 33rd and 34th streets in Manhattan. The modern 14-story building will have a retail store on the ground floor and forty luxury residential units above.

Two low-rise buildings at 227 and 229 Lexington Avenue will be demolished to make way for the residential project. Demolition permits for the existing low-rises were approved in September.

The glassy 40,000-square-foot building, to be called 229 Lexington Avenue, was designed by C3D Architecture and will feature full height structural glass windows and accentuated metal antique bronze finish frames, complementing the surrounding brick facade.

The new building will house just 40 units, smaller than many new developments in the neighborhood, such as 172 Madison Avenue and 160 Madison Avenue. Both projects are scheduled to rise just two blocks to the west.
