Tower280 at Midtown finalist for development award

Tower280 at Midtown has been named a finalist for a 2017 Award for Excellence in Development from the Urban Land Institute New York.

The $59 million mixed-use project on the site of the former Midtown Plaza downtown is one of three finalists in the Excellence in Repositioning or Redevelopment category. The other two finalists are projects in New York City and on Long Island.

Developed by Buckingham Properties LLC and Morgan Management LLC, Tower280 at Midtown includes two-story penthouses, 80,000 square feet of Class A office space, 50,000 square feet of retail space and a three-story atrium and skylight. There is also a rooftop lounge, with a 2,000-square-foot dog park.

“Our 2017 finalists are a testament to the outstanding quality of work from the preeminent leaders of the New York real estate industry,” said Marty Burger, chairman of the Urban Land Institute New York, in a statement. “This diverse group of innovative projects is leading the way in new and creative approaches to design, development and sustainability, and they demonstrate why New York is a leader for the country and the world.”

The winners are to be announced at the Awards for Excellence gala at Gotham Hall in New York City on April 3.
