Luxury link tops out at 44 stories in Hell's Kitchen.
El-Ad Properties, owner and developer of The Link, was represented at topping out ceremonies by its President and CEO, Miki Naftali, who thanked all involved in the construction of this dramatic new apartment tower, which features cutting-edge design and attention to detail.
Also speaking at the event was TCC's Chief Operating Officer, Jay Badame, who, drawing on the building's name, noted, "In our world, we who finance, develop, design and build projects, have inextricable links to each other. We all need to do our part in the chain to achieve success. I'm happy that we have accomplished that on this development."
Speaking to members of the entire project team, TCC President, John Livingston, thanked the many who have worked so tirelessly and skillfully to build The Link, and in particular, El-Ad Properties, for the confidence it has conferred on Tishman Construction Corporation, which is currently engaged in several Manhattan projects for the developer.
The Link, straddling a site between Midtown Manhattan and the Special Clinton District--where building heights are limited to 70 feet--features a 471-foot high-rise and adjoining mid-rise to the west to satisfy the dual zoning requirements. Thus, the tower will offer residents "protected" views, amplified by an aluminum window wall system allowing floor-to-ceiling glass installed in a facade of metallic column covers and aluminum slab covers.
The 215-unit building, designed by the New York-based team of Costas Kondylis and Partners and Gal Nauer Architects will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes that range in size from 600 s/f for one bedrooms to 2,500 s/f for three-bedroom townhouse and penthouse homes. Common amenities will include Full-time doorman, two professionally landscaped gardens that are accessible only to the building, a fitness center, lounge and private storage for the residences.
