The partial residential conversion of the iconic McGraw-Hill building at 330 W. 42nd Street has hopped onto the fast track.

Since I first reported to my colleague Louis Weiss that Resolution Real Estate was exploring the option in October 2022, “we’ve crossed all hurdles,” said Gerard Nocera, Managing Partner at Resolution.

The conversion of floors 12 through 34, which Nocera has estimated will cost $100 million, will begin this summer.

224 apartments are expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2024.

The reconfiguration will involve reinstalling the McGraw-Hill name above the residential entrance.

The remodeling of the Art Deco masterpiece includes the creation of a foyer and a second entrance and the reinstallation of the McGraw-Hill name above the residential entrance. Resolution works with SLCE Architects on apartment designs.
