Exterior work is wrapping up on Rose Hill, a 639-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 30 East 29th Street in NoMad. Designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Rockefeller Group, the 45-story project features a distinctive bronze-toned, Art Deco-inspired envelope and will yield 123 condominiums marketed by CORE Real Estate. Sales have launched for the homes, which come in one- to four-bedroom layouts and range in price from $1.385 million to upward of $19.5 million for the penthouse unit. Rose Hill’s name is derived from the former 130-acre Rose Hill Farm estate that was once part of the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood.

Work is progressing on the podium on the main northern profile, which features a number of decorative Art Deco motifs covering the perimeter concrete columns and mechanical vents. The crown will be illuminated by spotlights to evoke the architectural charm of New York’s early 20th century skyscrapers.

Among the most significant changes since our last update in December is the complete disassembly of the mechanical hoist on the southern elevation. A strip of yellow insulation boards remains where the hoist was attached, but should be filled in with the dark-colored curtain wall panels in the coming weeks.

Earlier this year, Rose Hill unveiled a number of model residences to showcase the homes’ appointments. Units come with rusticated hardwood floors and bronze finished hardware throughout. The kitchens have custom Italian-made matte dark charcoal cabinetry with metal-framed glass upper cabinets and Calacatta Razzi honed marble countertops, while the master bathrooms are fitted with Greek Dolomite Honed stonewalls with Breccia Capraia accent shower walls, dark marble radiant heated floors, custom walnut and bronze vanities with marble countertops, and aged brass fixtures.

The following model residences were built inside Rose Hill: model residence 20A which was furnished by CetraRuddy, a two-bedroom two-bathroom home; 11A, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom layout; and 20C, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit.  11A and 20C were furnished and staged by IMG.

We should expect the exterior and the rest of the interiors of Rose Hill to be fully finished in the coming weeks.
