The 2nd Avenue subway line is continuing to work its magic on the Upper East Side. Just three blocks from the Q and R train’s 86th Street subway station, permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use development at 333 East 82nd Street. Sean Lavin of Lavin Development will be responsible for the project.

The 75-foot tall structure will yield 35,800 square feet, with 35,250 square feet dedicated to residential use, and 620 square feet for a ground-floor medical facility. 21 apartments will be created, averaging 1,675 square feet apiece, indicating condominiums.

Tenants will benefit from a lobby, indoor recreation space on the ground floor, and parking for 11 bicycles. A seven-car garage will be included on site.

Brooklyn-based Zproekt Architecture is listed as responsible for the design.

Demolition permits for the existing structure were filed in April 2017. The estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Not bores not annoys me for an eight-story mixed-use development.

  2. Not that the existing building is particularly special, but it is nevertheless sad to see an unbroken line of old brownstones – all with their cornices intact no less – marred for the sake of some bland modern box that will give little back to what was otherwise a lovely tree-lined residential street. No doubt the backyards of the surrounding buildings will have to contend with more shade too.

  3. Are you kidding me? 8 stories on a 30-40 foot wide lot? Will you intruding YIMBY bloodsucking leeches stop at nothing? Take a look at the photo of that serene, classic upper eastside streetscape – soon to me marred by another middle finger sliver building that you YIMBYs so love to get your rocks off to.
    You can have your way with the avenues – you’ve already destroyed them – but “HANDS OFF THE SIDESTREETS!!”

    • I’ve edited your comment for profanity, however, with the 2nd avenue subway now partially complete, you bet we are coming for the side streets!

    • Love your post. Developers don’t or refuse to understand the fabric of the city and how important it is to have “smart growth”, not just build anywhere and everywhere. This is a classic mid-block liveable row of residential structures where real people live, not hip speculators who will inhabit a glossy condo, drool over the marble lined bathrooms and kitchens with high end appliances that nobody will use all contained in a bland glass box which will contribute nothing to the neighborhood. Sad to see this block destroyed by greed and ignorance.

  4. You obviously did not grow up here and have no appreciation for the delicate balance of scale, light and diversity that make up the social and architectural fabric of great NYC. It’s a shame that people like you missed out on the city when it was a gritty, vibrant, colorful and exciting place where people lived and worked, and built families and communities. All you have to contribute is to bury that greatness in glass and brushed chrome, and to chase out the very people who laid the foundation and made the city great. It breaks my heart to see the upper west side, where I grew up, now reduced to a strip mall of boring chain stores, boring buildings and boring people. Ditto for the LES, Harlem, etc.

    Nice work.

    “I started playing SimCity when I was 6 and by 9, I was a master,” said Mr. Fedak, a 2011 Fordham graduate and a former intern at the Clinton Global Initiative. “It definitely helped jump-start my fascination with architecture, since I’ve literally been building cities on computers since I was a child.”

    This is not SimCity, and New Yorkers are not those preppy, white cardboard renders drinking lattes and texting in the sleek lobbies of your future “developments.”

    P.S. Thanks for not deleting my post. I’ll keep future posts more PG-13, so as not to offend your “base.”

    • You know the UWS has been “reduced” because retail is no longer allowed anywhere except main arteries? Same for the UES. The lack of housing supply + restrictions on retail are the problem, not development in and of itself.

  5. The existing building is solid urbanism, built at a human scale, and people live there. Sad to see it go.

  6. Trading bucolic for barbaric. Anyone who believes destroying a uniform block like this is a good thing is concerned about only one thing…money.

    This is not demolition, this is vandalism. And it is indicative of not just one small block but of an entire neighborhood

    With all this destruction of older, perfectly livable-scale hand-built residences for glass-sheathed, cold monoliths, many much larger than this, eventually our neighborhood will be cast into a permanent, ugly darkness like midtown.

    I really pity future New Yorkers who will be living in this bland city and never knew the glory of unique, small scale New York neighborhoods like Yorkville. For over 120 years this was a true neighborhood where people knew and interacted with their neighbors and merchants.

    The rapid destruction of the upper east side is a combination of poor zoning laws, horrendous urban planning, paid off politicians, opportunity and greed.

    And there’s nothing that the average citizen or resident of this neighborhood can do about it. The game is rigged. Developers want to make money.

    And that big money, with the assistance of our corrupt representatives who always rely on re-election from the support of big money, will almost ALWAYS win out against common sense, beauty, aesthetics and doing the right thing. So complain, watch nothing be done to prevent the mutilation, and then sit back and accept the destruction.

    P.S. – A note to the administrator of YIMBY. You probably will not be swayed for obvious reasons of the nature and fiscal interest of your site, but at some point in your life I strongly suggest you read, if you haven’t already, Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, to better understand the other side of the coin.

    Not all development is bad, but currently there is an abundance of bad development.

  7. The R train doesn’t go to 86th street…
