301 E 50

Structure has reached the 24th floor at COOKFOX's 29-story, 57-unit residential condo in Midtown East, 301 E 50. There is no sign of the Indiana limestone façade with brise soleil sunshades that serve as a primary strategy in the building's sustainable design.  Lower floors have the façade anchoring elements installed into the concrete slabs which indicates the façade might not be absent for long.
