Back in May of 2014, YIMBY reported on plans for a 19-story, 30-unit residential building at 301 East 61st Street, located on the corner of Second Avenue, at the bottom of the Upper East Side. Since then, the project has risen silently and construction on the exterior is largely wrapping up, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The structure measures 58,957 square feet in total and includes 1,035 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The residential units will be condominiums, many of them duplexes, and should average 1,456 square feet apiece. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include bike storage on the ground floor, a recreational room on the 13th floor, and a rooftop terrace. Real Estate Inverted Development is the developer and Garrett Goulay Architect is behind the design. Completion is expected later this year.
