Luxury Tower at 222 E. 44th St. Celebrates Topping Off

NEW YORK — Suffolk, a privately held building contractor, has celebrated the topping off of a new tower at 222 East 44th Street, a 43-story mixed-use residential building located in Manhattan.

Developed by BLDG Management and designed by Handel Architects, the high-end luxury tower will feature state-of-the-art amenities and a sleek design. The completed tower will have 429 units, 87 of them being affordable, and a combination of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments.

The building amenities will include a fitness center, pool, spa, underground parking, basketball court, communal gardens/roof deck, lobby lounge area, children’s playroom, game room, movie screening room, and onsite laundry.

“This is a significant development that will enable residents of the Midtown East neighborhood to be right in the heart of an area well known for providing office space for thriving companies,” said Charles Avolio, President and General Manager of Suffolk’s New York Region. “We’re excited to be involved in this incredible project and bring our innovative ‘build smart’ approach to construction management.”

The Suffolk team is implementing its “build smart” approach by leveraging the latest Lean Construction principles and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) to enhance team-wide collaboration, eliminate waste and increase efficiencies on the project.

Suffolk is managing construction of the 222 East 44th Street project in a joint venture with Noble Construction Group. Construction is scheduled for completion in June 2018.
