Upper East Side
Construction has topped out and façade installation is well underway on the 30-story, 104-unit mixed-use building under development at 200 East 95th Street, located on the corner of Third Avenue on the Upper East Side. Progress on the structure can be seen at Curbed NY’s photo tour. The latest building permits indicate the building, dubbed The Kent, encompasses 317,664 square feet and rises 392 feet to its pinnacle.
Changes are coming this year to storefronts at 1114 Madison Avenue, also known as 25 East 83rd Street, on the Upper East Side. The 12-story residential building, built in 1938, hasn’t seen updates to its ground floor retail about thirty years, and YIMBY has a preview of what’s in store.
An anonymous LLC has filed applications for an 18-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 1639 First Avenue, located between East 85th and 86th streets in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side. The building will rise 199 feet, DNAinfo reported, and will encompass 50,126 square feet. There will be 1,983 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels, followed by residential units across the second through 18th floors. The apartments should average 1,314 square feet apiece, which suggests that condominiums are probably in the works.
Premier Equities and Thor Equities are partnering to develop a 31-story, 100,000-square-foot residential tower at 1297-1299 Third Avenue, located between East 74th and 75th streets on the Upper East Side.
