250 East 49th Street is a luxury residential condominium located at the corner of East 49th Street and Second Avenue in Manhattans Midtown East Side. The 24 story cylindrical glass tower rises from a podium that respects the street wall of the residential block comprised primarily of townhouses and lower scaled buildings. The first two levels will be primarily retail and entered from the avenue while the residential lobby will be on 49th Street. The remaining three levels of the podium section contain larger apartments with terraces that cut into the podium revealing the curved tower as it rises from the ground. The building will house 88 residences, of one, two and three bedrooms, with additional larger duplex penthouses on the top floors of the tower. The glass curved wall will be bracketed by tan colored terra cotta panels on either side that will further connect the tower with its masonry-clad neighbors.
