Permits have been filed for a six-story community facility at 323 East 61st Street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The site is just a couple blocks away from the off ramp of the Queensboro Bridge, and five blocks from the Lexington Avenue 59th Street subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, and W trains. William Macklowe Company will be responsible for the development.
The 74-foot tall structure will yield 61,740 square feet, with 49,750 square feet dedicated to community facility use. The permits do not specify the exact nature of the future tenants.
Daniel Goldner Architects will be responsible for the design. The firm boasts specialty in rebranding and repositioning existing structures, which gives hope for the continued survival of the existing masonry façade on site.
Demolition permits have not been filed yet, and the estimated completion date has not been announced.
