In December of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an 11-story residential building at 1766 Second Avenue and a six-story one at 1768 Second Avenue, in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side, on the corner of East 92nd Street. Now, Curbed NY has on-site renderings of the project, which has received the go-ahead by the Department of Buildings. The latest filings call for 30,127 and 14,104 square-foot buildings, respectively, with a combined total of 25 residential units, all of which would rent at below-market rates. Units will average 1,348 square feet apiece and will come in two- and three-bedroom layouts. There will also be a total of 3,676 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Extell Development is developing and Curtis + Ginsberg Architects is the architect of record. Two five-story tenement buildings were demolished in December and completion is expected in mid 2017.
