Rockefeller Group, the New York-based owner and developer known for building the eponymous Rockefeller Center in New York City, has topped out its first ever residential building in Manhattan. Rose Hill is a 123-unit luxury condo development at 30 E. 29th St. in the NoMad neighborhood. At 600 feet tall, the community is one of the tallest residential buildings in the neighborhood.

The topping out comes two months after Rockefeller named Thomas Weeks as executive vice president and head of development at the firm. Weeks was tapped to oversee more than 40 development professionals and $3 billion worth of existing and new projects.

Lendlease, the project’s general contractor, is overseeing construction of Rose Hill, which is situated between Madison and Park Avenues, just northeast of Madison Square Park. Sales launched earlier this year at the 45-story building, which was named after the 130-acre Rose Hill Farm estate that formerly occupied the site.  

CetraRuddy is heading up architecture and interior design at Rose Hill, which is described as a mix of Art Deco with “sophisticated home design,” according to the development team. Apartment homes at the tower will range in size from studio to four-bedroom and will start in price at $1.2 million. Closings are expected to begin late next year.

Interior finishes include hand-picked materials, custom kitchen cabinetry and marble baths, with custom-designed vanities, oversized windows and high ceilings. Additionally, many of the units will feature private outdoor space.

The building will offer a slew of amenities to residents, including a health and wellness club with programming from several New York-based fitness concepts, a lobby bar called The Blue Room, a Strand Books-curated library, garden courtyard and a package and mail room with cold storage. The entirety of the 37th floor will house a private residents club for residents of the building and their guests.
