Project Description

FNA provided special inspections and support of excavation for 252 East 57th Street, a 65-story luxury tower atop two public schools in Midtown Manhattan. The tower features rental units on lower floors and condominiums above the 36th floor, maximizing long-term value. Its distinctive facade incorporates inverted bay windows, offering stunning views of Central Park and the East River. Strategically placed entrances activate the streetscape along 57th Street and 2nd Avenue, serving both the community and residents.
