Upper East Side
The Brearley School, a private all-girls prep school on the Upper East Side, is planning an expansion at 70-74 East End Avenue. Three five-story tenement buildings are set to be razed to make-way for an eight- to ten-story academic building measuring 75,000 to 85,000 square feet, according to Bloomberg Business. The school is currently in the process of receiving financing, and construction is expected to start in early 2017.
Tribeca-based developer DDG has just started construction on 180 East 88th Street, set to become the tallest tower above 72nd Street, when it tops out at 521 feet.
Extell Development and Carlyle Group have filed applications for another Riverside Center building, this time at 639 West 59th Street, in Lincoln Square. The building will stand 34 stories or 391 feet in height, and will have 244 residential units. Retail space will span 1,845 square feet on the ground floor within the larger 330,152 square-foot building, and amenity space will be located on the ground floor and cellar. Goldstein Hill & West Architects is the architect of record.
Property owner Michael D’Alessio, of Michael Paul Enterprises, has filed applications to horizontally and vertically expand (by one story) the five-story building at 184 East 64th Street on the Upper East Side. The planned six-story structure will have five residential units spread across 10,740 square feet of space, for an average unit of 2,150 square feet. The existing building is currently fit for three units, and Vail Associates is the applicant of record.
A few days ago, partial renderings of the new mixed-use development coming to 147-151 East 86th Street surfaced. The site abuts one of the most prominent corners of the Upper East Side in terms of pedestrian traffic, and fittingly, the existing structure will soon meet the wrecking ball for a new 21-story building with an address of 1289 Lexington Avenue, which YIMBY can now reveal.
Partial renderings have surfaced for a 21-story building at 147-155 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side. The site is being developed by Ceruzzi Properties, Stillman Development and Kuafu Properties. According to Commercial Observer, the 230,000 square-foot building will include 30,000 square feet of retail on the first two floors, another 24,000 square feet on the third and fourth floors for a New York Sports Club, and 50 condominiums on top.
In May, YIMBY reported on filings for a 21-story, 48-unit condominium building at 302 East 96th Street, on the northern edge of the Upper East Side. Now Curbed has a rendering of the mixed-use project, which is being developed by Wonder Works Construction, Fimida Enterprises and Mink Development. Amended in June, filings now show the building measuring 75,395 square feet, and a 2,185 square-foot retail portion is planned. Units will average 1,525 square feet, and Karl Fischer is designing. Demolition filings for the existing three-story parking structure were filed in April.
